AMD Athlon processor family is the first high-
performance CPU family using AMD K7 architecture.
Like the Intel Pentium II processors, the first
Athlons used backside 512 KB L2 cache running at
half of the processor speed. The L2 cache was
running even slower on faster Athlons - 2/5 and
1/3 of the of the processor speed. To accommodate
the processor and the off-die cache the Athlons
used Card Module package - a cartridge, visually
similar to Pentium II cartridge. The Card Module
package required a slot-type socket, which was
called Slot A.
