The Thunderbird core of AMD Athlon CPU. Available in speeds ranging from 650 MHz to 1.4 GHz. Most are Socket A CPUs, though some were made in Slot A versions for backward compatability. All are made on a 0.18 process, with 256k of L2 cache, and 64K of L1.

Athlon Thunderbirds (especially the higher models like the 1.33 and the 1.4) became known for their immense heat output, especially when overclocked. Since most heatsinks at the time still used 60mm fans, a Delta 38 was often used to cool them off, despite it sounding like a hair dryer. A Tbird 1.4 pumps out about 75 watts of heat at stock speed and voltacge (1.75), and it wasn't untill the likes of the AX-7 came along that they became more accessable to overclocking.

The record for Thunderbird overclocking was, I believe, set by a man in Japan who used LN2 (Liquid Nitrogen) to chill a 1GHz AXIA Thunderbird, which he then overclocked to some 2 GHz.

The most wonderfull sight to be introduced to american men in the last few years. The rise of a womans thong or G-string, while her pants are lowered. T-bird, only works with pretty, sexy woman. When a T-bird is exposed on a fat woman - it is then called a 'T-bomb'.
Hey bro', Is that Carl's sister over there bending over? Yeah, check out her T-Bird. Nice !!!

High Potency (18% ABV) citrus flavored fortified wine. A BUM WINE, in a family with Wild Irish Rose, Cisco, Maddog 20/20, and its next of kin Night Train. It is made by the same company that manufactures Night Train. Has a terrible yellowish color and foul odor. Taste terrible. Dirt cheap. Bum wines are the best bang for your buck when trying to get drunk on a budget.
Like its other Bum Wine Relatives.. T-bird seems to have some ingredient in it that makes the drinker go temporarily insane. Possibly liquid crack.

A nickname for any girl's name that starts with T, which usually means to fly away gracefully moving on with life, to be graceful, or just describing how beautiful she is. This is a great inspirational nickname if your girl is down.
Friend: "Don't fly away sweet T-Bird, come here, you are ok."

Girl being called T-Bird: "You are such a sweetheart."
