The Chips

The 1.2GHz Athlon is based on the same 0.18-micron Thunderbird core that was introduced back in June.  Its basic specs, outside of power and voltage requirements, have not changed since its introduction.  For more information on the Thunderbird core take a look at our AMD Athlon “Thunderbird” Review.

· 37 million transistor 0.18-micron Thunderbird core with Copper interconnects
· 1.2GHz (1200MHz) clock speed - 12.0x clock multiplier
· 128KB on-die L1 cache running at core speed
· 64-bit exclusive 256KB on-die L2 cache running at clock speed
· 462-pin Socket A EV6 CPU interface running at 100MHz DDR (effectively 200MHz)
· 1.75v core voltage

The 800MHz Duron also remains unchanged from the introductory Duron we saw back in June. For more information on that CPU, take a look at our full AMD Duron Review.

· 25 million transistor 0.18-micron Duron core with Aluminum interconnects
· 800MHz clock speed - 8.0x clock multiplier
· 128KB on-die L1 cache running at core speed
· 64-bit exclusive 64KB on-die L2 cache running at clock speed
· 462-pin Socket A EV6 CPU interface running at 100MHz DDR (effectively 200MHz)
· 1.60v core voltage
