AMD launches special OC Athlon XP 1800+ in Korea

Edit : It seems that the information from the Korean site was pretty bogus, this CPU is already avaible for a few months. My apologies for the mistake.

It seems like there has been a new AMD Athlon XP 1800+ released in Korea for overclockers. Special is that this one is running at a voltage of only 1.5V. The normal version requires 1.65V. Probably this will result in better overclocking results because of lowered heat production.

The CPU is running at 1.53GHz with a FSB of 266MHz, and it has 256KB of L2 cache. The CPU is produced at 0.13 micron process. Here is a picture of the box :

And a picture of the included aluminium heatsinkfan with round copper base. Price is 87,000 South Korea Won, this is about $74. Cheapest price of a normal Athlon XP 1800+ at Pricegrabber is $54.50.

nothing special, seen a lot 1700+ like this, donm't make it sound like a big deal, when it is. Just a 1800+ with good stepping.

    Even more,
    I reckon that "DLT3C" ref stands for 1.5 Voltage, so I don't know what's new with this CPU, except the it is officially launched by AMD
