Socket 462

Just like Intel, AMD wants out of SEC based processors very badly. The Athlon name has become split in the move back to the socket based CPU. Both the Thunderbird and the Duron use Socket 462. Since this socket uses a ZIF design, starting with a Duron and changing over (upgrading) to a Thunderbird later is a snap.

[spacer]Good-Bye Athlon!

As the Subject Matter Experts called the A+ 2001 a wrap, Athlon was Slot A, and not a family name. What you and I can expect in the real world is from a development standpoint, the original Athlon is well past its heyday, and that is how it has to be to keep up with Intel and the new G5/IBM 970 CPU from Apple/IBM.
