anyone know whats going on with amd processors? there are none anywhere. there only seems to be info from aug about shortages of amd stuff thnx
All XP chips below 2800 have been dicontinued. They are no longer being produced so it's just a matter of when someone turns up who has still got stock. Expect this situation to get worse rather than better. To compound this problem, 2800 and above seem to be in short supply as well.

Hi, just got one of these and it's running like a dream. Unfortunately my Abit KD7-S mobo doesn't recognize it and comes up with "unknown cpu" on boot up. Like I said it's running great-I've actually overclocked it to 3000 with no problems. I have upgraded the bios in case you're wondering

Does the 512kb Cache on Xp2500 and up make much difference over xp2400+ ?

For people looking to do the 3200 trick, I recommend the Abit NF7-S motherboard. Very very good - just select 3200 in the bios and thats you done. Plus it completely ignores the multiplier locks :D

Hi there, Having got a 2000+ and M/B MSI-6570 (K7N2G-ILSR), I am now considering to upgrade. Just wondered whether or not I could overclock one of those CPUs(2500+) to 3200+. I am concerned as FSB 400MHz and 3000+ processors are not supported by my M/B (according to the manual). This is all in theory and might not be tue. Any ideas?
If your motherboard doesn't support 400FSB, then there's no feasible way you could get a 2500 to 3200 speeds..
