AMD Set to Drop Current Athlon 64 Model Numbers
Advanced Micro Devices, the world’s second largest producer of x86 microprocessors is considering to cease using current model numbers, which are sometimes called as “performance rating” (PR) to mark its desktop microprocessors, according to a media report. Instead, AMD’s next-generation chips will use a new model numbering scheme.
For years AMD used performance ratings to differentiate various AMD Athlon XP microprocessors and to show their relative performance in comparison with AMD Athlon “Thunderbird” processors. When AMD64 desktop chips were introduced, AMD decided to drop “performance rating” name and started to use “model number” term instead. Both types of numbers allowed AMD to compare its chips to Intel’s microprocessors that were marked with their clock-speeds.
