AMD releases 750-MHz Athlon

Monday, AMD released their 750-MHz Athlon processor which hopes to out perform Intel's latest 733-MHz chip. From the CNET announcement:
"The 750-MHz Athlon systems should be available from top-tier [computer makers] by year's end, a quarter ahead of schedule," said CEO Jerry Sanders at the company's analyst meeting on Nov. 11. "There is no question we are moving up the food chain. We're experiencing a strong quarter. Demand for all our products is robust."
