AMD had quite a strong presence at this years ITExpo. They had one of the largest stands of the show and were positioned right near the entrance. AMD were kind enough to give away free AMD tattoos to all of their visitors and even had water guns to apply the tattoo for you.
The most interesting product displayed at AMD's stand, in my opinion, was the AthlonXP 2100+. This chip is rated at 1.73GHz and it will be very interesting to see how it performs. Its presence at ITExpo suggests that the release of the 2100+ AthlonXP is very close.
Also on display at AMD's stand were new SocketA motherboards from manufacturers such as MSI and Soltek. A few of them that grabbed my attention were the MSI KT3-Ultra, MSI K7D Master and Soltek 75DRV4 boards. The KT3-Ultra, based on the newly released VIA KT333 chipset features ATA133 support, USB 2.0, onboard LAN, onboard AC'97 audio, five PCI slots and one CNR slot. This looks to be a very impressive board and hopefully we will be able to get it in for testing in the near feature.
The MSI K7D Master is a dual AthlonMP board based on the AMD 762/768 chipsets. It features optional onboard LAN, USB 2.0, onboard AC'97 audio, two 64-bit/66MHz PCI slots and three 32-bit/33MHz PCI slots. The USB 2.0 support comes on a separate 4-port PCI card that is included with the package.
The Soltek 75DRV4 is based on the much praised KT266A chipset and features a very attractive purple PCB. It features ATA133 support, four USB ports (extra two enabled by an optional cable), five PCI slots and one CNR slot. Just the look of the board alone is enough to make me want to purchase it.
AMD also had a PC setup at their stand that showed benchmarks of their AthlonXP compared to a similarly clocked Pentium 4 processor. They also had a few AMD-based notebooks on display, one of which they allowed visitors to have a play with.
