AMD Athlon XP 3000+

I am sure I remember reading a review of this new processor from AMD with the report that it outperformed the P4 and produced the highest world bench score ever.

A search does not bring anything up. Can anyone remember this and tell me where I can now find it?

May not be the one you are looking for,but it does say Barton beat P4 3.06 in some benchmarks.

Thanks Chris - that's exactly what I was looking for. Does that sound a good processor or does that sound like a good processor!

It's also a very expensive processor for the moment - release price,I believe,is $575.
