AMD 2600+ & 2700+ XP 333 FSB
According to this translation at Xbit-labs, AMD Athlon XP processors with 2600+ and 2700+ model numbers appeared in Japanese retail. Both CPUs are intended for 333MHz system bus and run at 2083 and 2166MHz respectively. It worth to mention that there are very few 2600+ chips with 266MHz FSB support all around the world at this time, hence, it may eventually appear that AMD will offer its products with this model number only for the 333MHz system bus. The Athlon XP 2700+ processor is priced at Y50800 ($420), while its lower speed brethren costs Y42800 ($354). It seems that the novelties are a bit overpriced, since officially AMD sells such devices for $349 and $297 respectively in quantities starting from 1000 pieces.

No NV30 for Xmas
Due to rumors about nv30 speculation and release dates, combined with failure to appear or show the new technology, nvidia stock has started to drop. I guess everyone is pissed off that they have to go with competitors products if they want cutting edge performance.
