Abit KT7A and Athlon XP 2100?

I'd like to put an Athlon XP 2100 (Palomino) on my Abit KT7A rev. 1.1

Has somebody made experiences with this configuration already? Do you think it works?

  1. I have that motherboard, but no experience with that CPU. I believe that you should have no problems as long as you flash the latest BIOS first.

    Of course, even if it works fine, you will not get the full performance of the CPU while you are still using SDRAM so the motherboard should be on your 'to be upgraded soon' list. Along with the RAM since all the newer motherboards require DDR.
  2. Here's the word from the Abit support forums:

    Bottom line: It might work, but is not officially supported on boards prior to rev. 1.3
