Advanced Micro Devices has begun shipping two new versions of its Athlon XP processor and says machines based on the chips can be expected in September.

The chips have performance ratings of 2400+ and 2600+, although the clock speeds details have not been supplied. The processors are built using AMD's 0.13-micron Thoroughbred core, like the previous fastest 2200+ processor, which was the first AMD chip to use the core and appeared in June.

The 2600+ and 2400+ processors will cost $297 and $193 respectively in 1,000-unit quantities, which is a standard measurement for chip prices.
