Those faster MP chips could be introduced early next year, and possibly with the release of the MP 2600+.
Although the firm will not comment on unannounced products, we understand that the move to a 333MHz system bus is a comparatively trivial matter.
The 768MPX chipset will likely have to be tweaked for the introduction.
Indeed, current chipsets supporting the 333MHz system bus may already support some MP chips, although motherboards are not qualified or supported for such a revision.
Although AMD is careful to position its MP chips as reliability products, as they're being used in dual systems, we understand that there are few, if any obstacles to 333MHz support, perhaps early in the new year. µ
