Can someone advise me as to the diferance between a Athlon processor with a thoroughbred core and a barton core.

Is ther any benafit with one against the other, is one faster than the other or is it just a new development as the thoroughbred was over the palamino.

Barton is a progression and improvement on the Thoroughbred - and yes it is supposedly faster.
