AMD has introduced the 1.4GHz AMD Athlon processor, its latest PC processor for the performance market.

The company claims that the new processor is the world's most powerful processor for personal computers, claiming that systems based on the 1.4GHz Athlon outperform systems based on Intel's 1.7GHz Pentium 4 processor by up to 40% on a variety of benchmarks, including multimedia, desktop publishing, digital imaging and voice recognition applications.

The 1.4GHz AMD Athlon processor, available with a 266MHz or a 200MHz front-side bus and featuring double data rate memory (DDR), is priced at USD253.

AMD has also launched a 950MHz AMD Duron processor for everyday business and home computing. The processor costs USD122.

In addition the company has unveiled its first multiprocessing-capable platform for one- and two-way servers and workstations. Based on the AMD Athlon MP processor and the AMD-760 MP chipset, the platform supports DDR memory technology and also incorporates AMD's Smart MP technology, which increases data movement between the CPUs, chipset and memory system to enhance overall platform performance.

AMD's Athlon MP processors are available at frequencies of 1GHz and 1.2GHz, priced at USD215 and USD265 respectively. All prices for purchases in 1,000-unit quantities.
