View Full Version : Re: True Speed for Athlon CPU's?

COprocessors went the way of the Dodo bird.........do you mean "processors"?
If so, and if you are seeing the low numbers, and the bios supports the AMD
processors, then you have the FSB set wrong.(too low) My 2500+ shows 2500+
at boot. As a matter of fact, I have it overclocked to 3200+ and it SHOWS
that it is a 3200+ processor at boot.
To make a long story short, you should see what the processor speed is RATED
at, at bootup.regardless of the "rating system" (unless your bios does not
directly support the processor)
