Athlon XP speeds and multipliers
Posted on 2003-12-04
I'm so confused about Athlon XP speeds that I'm actually willing to avoid researching. I'd rather let you very nice people rule it out for me.
What I've heard:
XP 2600 333FSB - 12.5 multiplier
That would result in 2.075GHz!
How come an XP 2800 is slower than an XP 2600?
Why is there such a huge leap in speed between the 2500 and the 2600?
Why is the 2700 $40 more expensive than the 2600, but only 10MHz faster?
What are the multiplier settings for the XP 3000s (333 and 400)?
Can all 266MHz FSB boards support an Athlon XP 2600 266FSB if the multiplier is set to Auto (if it boots up)?
Finally, I'd like the multiplier settings for all 333FSB Athlons 2600 and up and the multiplier settings for all 400FSB Athlons.
By the way, is the XP 2500 faster than the XP 2400 at all it does? Does the FSB make that much of a difference?
Thank you very much,
