I was wondering what the diff is between the amd athlon and the T-bird? My packaging says I have T-bird but bios and under windows system properties on general tab it says amd athlon? Is it the bus speed, cache and actual speed of cpu? thanks for your help and knowledge.

Thunderbird is the difference in architecture... Athlon is the type... thats why the new one is an AMD Athlon XP or MP or Thunderbird, and i think Duron as well as the old k7
