  AMD delays 64-bit Athlon chip | CNET News.com
AMD, which had originally been expected to introduce the chip in March or April, now plans to launch it in September, simultaneously with a notebook version of the chip, a company representative said.
Athlon 64, originally slated for the end of 2001, was set to come out at the end of last year, but in September the company pushed it back to the first quarter of 2003.
One of the main advances of the move to 64 bits is that it lets computers such as servers support much larger amounts of memory than current AMD Athlon chips, which address only 32 bits of data.

 X86-64 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
AMD therefore decided that, in the first implementations of the architecture, only the least significant 48 bits of a virtual address would actually be used in address translation (page table lookup).
This was largely due to the competitive pressure of AMD's AMD64 technology implemented on Opteron and Athlon64 lines of microprocessing units, otherwise known as the K8 core, one year earlier in 2003; the technology was largely built compatible to AMD64, and the then announced Windows XP Professional x64 Edition supporting AMD64 technology.
Intel 64 is also present in the last members of the Celeron D line.

 AMD Plans 64-Bit Sempron Processors - News by InformationWeek
AMD is planning a 64-bit version of its Sempron processor, presaging a down-market duel in which the scrappy semiconductor vendor will battle Intel's upcoming 64-bit Celeron D. By Alexander Wolfe
AMD is planning a 64-bit version of its Sempron processor, presaging a down-market duel in which the scrappy semiconductor vendor will battle Intel's upcoming 64-bit Celeron D for control of the so-called "value-priced" market segment, where PCs can sell for as little as $300.
For example, AMD first teased the availability of 64-bit Semprons in April, when Marty Seyer, vice president and general manager of AMD's microprocessor business unit, told TechWeb that the processors would be forthcoming, but declined to say exactly when.

 [H] Enthusiast - AMD Athlon 64 X2 Preview
This is the same marketing strategy we saw Intel use at their dual core processor launch, but I think that AMD has done a better job at defining the segment with less confusing marketing.
Where AMD differs a tremendous amount from Intel in the dual core department is that AMD did not just "glue" two of their high performance processors together.
If that were not enough, AMD has done some very slick things with Athlon 64 X2 power consumption, much as we have seen them do with their low power "mobile" processors.

AMD has done a good job of selling the Turion 64 as a notebook processor, so people tend to assume that it is less powerful and less interesting than the top-of-the-line Athlon 64 and X2 processors.
Turion 64 chips are built from low-voltage transistors that have less electrical leakage, and the layout of the chip has been optimized for low power, not high speed.
AMD's top processors all feature two cores, but this feature has yet to show up in their Turion 64 lineup.

AMD chose to launch the 3000+ CPU in a most subtle way after the 3200+ was introduced about 100 days earlier, so silent that not even a press release was issued for the occasion; more intriguingly, only two documents on the whole AMD website even mentions the model 3000+.
As for overclockability, the Athlon 64 3000+ proves to be a poor overclocker with an average of 10% gain.

 AMD Athlon64 3200+ 32/64-bit Processor Review - PCSTATS.com
In the late 90's AMD released several processors in hopes of stealing the spotlight away from Intel and its Pentium II and later Pentium III processor.
AMD's K6, K6-2 and K6-III processors all had a lot of promise, but with constant delays and manufacturing problems they just fizzled, ending up competing against Intel's bargain-basement budget Celeron processor, instead of the Pentium II's.
With the Athlon, AMD had accomplished their trend-setting goals, and observers could see the Athlon was clearly superior to the Intel's Pentium 3 chip.

 Welcome to AnandTech.com [ Article: AMD's Athlon 64 3400+: Death of the FX-51]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
AMD surprised us all with a far more competitive Athlon 64 launch than we had originally expected, and Prescott didn’t exactly make it out the gates.
When we first looked at the Athlon 64 and FX we realized that the performance difference between the two was negligible at best, but what truly sealed the fate of the Athlon 64 FX in our eyes was the quiet release of the Athlon 64 3000+ based on AMD's Newcastle core.
Perhaps AMD felt that it would be necessary to compete with Prescott or perhaps there were design issues with getting it to market in time, needless to say that slowly but surely all Athlon 64's will be Newcastle derived.

When the Athlon 64 3000+ was released, it was a huge bargain at nearly half the price of the 3200+ but still nearly delivering a performance parity.
Most AMD loyalists may still be having a hard time thinking about spending that much money on an AMD processor because AMD has deservedly gained a reputation of offering the public one great bargain top-performer after another.
AMD was quite a bit ahead of the pack when it released its AMD64 platform, but people who buy an Athlon 64 processor (or some other AMD64-supporting CPU) could look at it as buying a little bit of obsolescence insurance.
