Evesham rolls 1.33GHz Athlon out door
Double data rate ink
UK PC manufacturer Evesham confirmed today that it is ready to ship a 1.33GHz AMD Athlon machine that uses double data rate (DDR) memory.
There's no Palomino core yet, as far as we can tell. The indications are end users will have to wait a while for that.
That follows an eagle-eyed Reg reader spotting a review of the machine in the May issue of UK magazine PC Pro, an advance copy of which he received through the post.
He said: "This has a full review of a 1.33GHZ Athlon DDR based system (from Evesham) showing some absolutely storming benchmark results. And this appears to be ahead of any such review by the Internet hardware fraternity. The results posted by PC Pro would suggest more than just a speed grade increase - is this the first look at the Palomino core?"
An Evesham representative commented: "AMD are happy with the review success we have had on this product and will continue to work with us to build on this successful relationship."
So if the 1.3GHz and 1.33GHz machines aren't out yet, they will be, soon enough.
Last week, an AMD representative told The Register that his firm had secured 65 per cent of consumer market share in the UK. ®
