Just in case there are still a few of you out there questioning the validity of the rumors and stories surrounding the next AthlonXPs being born of a 333MHz FSB, this authentic picture of a 2700+ should put the rumors to rest. While yes, I have personally done some Photoshop work on this picture to hide some of the chips identifying features, what is important to look at is above the thick yellow line. Notice the last letter in the code is a "D". Now check out the OPN chart and you will notice that the current "C" is 266MHz and if you look back you will find that the "B" was 200MHz. Also worth noting is that this is certainly not a Barton core with double the current L2 cache as shown in the part number as well. We will have to wait for the 2800+ to see that.
