I have finally returned home from my adventures in Taiwan and Singapore for this years Computex computer expo, but now it's back to work and to start I'll give you guys some news. AMDmb have an article discussing the overclocking ability of the new AMD Thoroughbred processors. The article gives a good indication of what we can expect in terms of overclockability from the new line of 0.13 processors from AMD.

Based on the other results I have seen on the Athlon XP 2200+ processor, I surely have to admit that my results are atypical from what you should expect if you got your hands on a first run processor, or if the retail processors that reach the market are the same as the ones reviewer's received. You could find yourself with a processor that overclocks only 25 MHz, like the folks at Anandtech, or you could get one that overclocks to about 2 GHz, like the one at HardOCP. It is even possible that you get one that can go beyond the 2.1 GHz that I reached in this article.
