The Athlon XP range of processors were a great success for AMD, and were perhaps the first point where AMD had a genuine and sustained technical advantage over their great rival, Intel.
The 2000+ is a Socket A processor running at 1.67GHz. While obviously used in new build computers at the time, this chip is not a very common upgrade. This is because the Athlon 2400+ supports uses the same socket and Front Side Bus speed, and offers a 20% performance improvement compared to the 2000+.
Even today I use a 2000+ as the processor in my primary computer. It has run reliably for seven years, probably due the to the low thermal emissions compared to competing Pentiums. It still has all the performance needed to run day to day applications, and is certainly not the weakest link in my computing setup. By modern standards it is hopelessly outdated, but an Athon 2000 based machine is still a viable choice for general use.
The AMD Athlon XP processor with QuantiSpeed architecture powers the next generation in computing platforms, delivering extra performance for cutting-edge applications and an extraordinary computing experience. The AMD Athlon XP processor is the latest member of the AMD Athlon family of processors designed to meet the computation-intensive requirements of cutting-edge software applications running on high-performance desktop systems.
AMD delivers tremendous performance by increasing the amount of work done per clock cycle and improving the operating frequency at the same time. The end result is a processor design that produces a high volume of work done per cycle and high operating frequencies - an optimum combination for compelling application performance.
