AMD AthlonXP 2600+ Reviews

With AMD lifting the NDAs today and officially announcing the launch of the new AthlonXP 2600+ processor, it looks as if anybody and everybody has their own reviews of the new processor. You can find reviews at AMDMB, AnandTech, [H]ardOCP, Tech Report, Xbit Labs. One little note that I like came from Tech Report's article:
From a price-performance standpoint, the Athlon is still far and away the leader. Intel's pricing for the new Pentium 4 chips looks like so:

Pentium 4 2.53GHz: $637
Pentium 4 2.40B GHz: $562
Pentium 4 2.26: $423

For $637, you can put together the core of a nice Athlon XP-based system with a motherboard, memory, and a graphics card. (We're talking Athlon XP 2100+ processor, KT266A motherboard, 512MB PC2100 memory, and a GeForce4 Ti 4200 graphics card for that price.) Yeowch!
Can't wait till they start shipping the 333Mhz FSB models!
