Hewlett-Packard apparently slipped up and revealed some of the specifications for Advanced Micro Devices' upcoming Athlon64 chip, a processor that HP seems to be preparing to use in its PCs.

The Palo Alto, Calif.-based computer maker posted technical specifications for a desktop computer to its site this week, and one of the features is an Athlon64 3100+ chip. The chip runs at 1.8GHz and comes with 1MB of cache, a pool of memory that's integrated into the processor for rapid data access, according to HP's technical documentation.
