Palomino ‘is really cool’

Says our man with the asbestos fingers

One of our regular AMD informants emails to confirm that the forthcoming Athlon Palomino is indeed exceptionally cool.

"You can put a finger on it while its running," he states.

Regrettably we are not told if this is one of our mole's fingers, or one belonging to someone he doesn't like very much.

As someone whose promising rock'n'roll career was brought to an untimely end by a bizarre accident with a finger and an early Pentium III prototype in an Intel lab, such cool running can only be applauded. ®
