AMD is showing off a new processor chip today at the CeBIT trade show taking place in Germany. AMD hopes this new chip will give them an edge over rival Intel. The Athlon XP 2100+ runs at 1.73GHz, slower than Intel's top chip, but performs better.
The new chip, is probably the last before AMD moves on to their much-anticipated Thoroughbred technology, which will use the 130-nanometer manufacturing process. Thoroughbred has been delayed slightly, and is due out next quarter.
Along with the 2100+, AMD will also unveil two other chips, a desktop version called the 1600+ and a server and workstation version called the Athlon XP 2000+.
