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.
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.
