part of the Athlon's internal bus architecure is based off the Alpha's
internal bus architecture. AMD licensed it from DEC. It makes the
Athlons and Thunderbird chips scream.

chips. Clock cycle for clock cycle, dollar for dollar, and instruction
for instruction, AMD chips blow Intel chips out of the water.
