Introduction

 

At the moment everyone is looking at the latest chipsets and processors to hit the Intel front and it seems that AMD has been slightly left behind.

 

Intel has taken the lead further and further away from AMD and they seem to be having a bit of trouble catching up. On the market we currently have three different chipsets to choose from for the AMD Athlon XP platform - VIA's KT400 and KT400A and what seems to be AMD's speed king the nVidia nForce 2.
