About the AMD Athlon™ MP Processor

The AMD Athlon MP processor is a seventh-generation x86 processor designed for high-performance multiprocessing servers and workstations. A key advantage of AMD’s multiprocessing platform is Smart MP technology, which greatly enhances overall platform performance by increasing data movement between the two CPUs, chipset and memory system. Smart MP technology features dual point-to-point, high-speed 266MHz system buses with Error Correcting Code (ECC) support designed to provide up to 2.1GB per second per CPU of bus bandwidth in a dual-processor system. Smart MP technology also has an optimized Modified Owner Exclusive Shared Invalid (MOESI) cache coherency protocol that manages data and memory traffic in a multiprocessing environment.

The AMD Athlon MP processor features the patented QuantiSpeed™ architecture, which includes a high performance full-speed cache with hardware data pre-fetch, a fully pipelined superscalar floating point engine, and an exclusive L2 Translation Look-aside Buffer (TLB). The processor also incorporates 3DNow!™ Professional technology, which has 51 new instructions that extend AMD’s 3DNow! technology, enabling smoother, richer and more lifelike images, more precise digital audio and an enriched Internet experience.

The AMD Athlon MP processor is compatible with AMD’s stable Socket A infrastructure, and supports DDR memory technology.

There is no athlon amp.. You are probably talking about the athlon MP.. The athlon mp's are geared more toward dual processor server boards.. A lone mp is only as good or as a athlon tbird 1.4 gig-C.. Xp is currently the best amd athlon at the moment.. The next chip from amd is going to be the The amd Hammer x86-64 which will be able to run 64bit apps of the future and old 32 bit apps that we use right now.. You can go and check for some indepth specs and performance benchmarks of both the Xp and MP as well as learn about the amd Hammer..
