Mobile Barton 2400/2500/2600

OK,

I just searched on NEWEGG for the famous "Mobile Barton 2500+". And I found it!

but I was wondering, why everyone recommend to buy the 2500+ over the 2400+ or the 2600+. Is there any reason to buy the 2500+ at 93$US when the 2400+ is 77$US? And maybe for 8$ more the 2600+ will make higer multiplier available?

Logically, all the Mobile Barton will overclock well!

MOBILE BARTON PRICES FROM NEWEGG (march 25, 2004):
2400+ = 77$
2500+ = 93$
2600+ = 101$

Because, if no one can find a good argument in favor of the 2500+/2600+, I will buy the 2400+.

  1. are you sure 2400+ has 512k L2 cache?

    I hate my TI4200.
  2. Check this article : <A HREF="http://www.fastlanehw.com/reviews.php?action=view&revid=102" target="_new">Mobile 2400+ stable at 2.7GHz even reached 3.0GHz with it.</A>

    <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduct.asp?DEPA=0&submit=Go&description=mobile,athlon,2400" target="_new">Newegg Price</A>

    It's why I'm concerned, why to buy a Mobile 2500+ when 2400+ are available. Maybe the Mobile Barton 2400+ got to the market after the 2500+ and it's why many people referred to it as the "AMD Overclocker Dream!".

  3. Yeah you're probably right.

    But then again, 2500+ maybe defective 2600+, 2400+ maybe defective 2500+.

    I'm not certain about the mobile chips, but as for Athlon64 that's how it goes. Defective 3400+? turn it down by 200mhz and call it 3200+, defective 3200+? reduce L2, 3000+. I couldn't afford 3400+, so went with 3200+. The 3200+ can reach 2.4Ghz, yet most 3000+ with same stock speed can barely reach 2.2Ghz

    I hate my TI4200.
  4. its only 25 bucks for insurance that you're getting the best mobile xp chip...i'd pay for that...wait, i did.

    AMD XP-M 2600+ @ 2.63Ghz (12x210 @1.75v)
    Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2
    Geil 2x256MB PC3200 (2-3-3-11)
    Gigabyte Radeon 9200 128MB VIVO
    WD 36GB 10,000RPM 8MB SATA
    Maxtor 40GB 7,200RPM 8MB ATA133
  5. Humm... Maybe, but I'm not sure, because the effective difference in clock speed is not much.

    And I just found contradiction on the web :
    AXMH2200FQQ4C = 1.8GHz/256K (133*13.5)
    AXMH2400FQQ4C = 2.0GHz/256K (133*15)
    AXMH2400FQQ4C = 1.8GHz/512K (133*13.5)
    AXMH2500FQQ4C = 1.86GHz/512K (133*14)
    AXMH2600FQQ4C = 2.13GHz/512K (133*16)

    Maybe NEW XP-M 2400+ are Barton and old one were t-Bred?

    When I check SPECS only, I would choose the 2600+, because it's only +8$US and it actually works with a multiplier of 16. With my actual DDR333 I may be able to crank this CPU to 167*16 = 2.67GHz without O/C memory.

  6. What is your XP-M 2600+ part number, and what is the default and the maximum multiplier of it?

  7. thats stupid, he was using 2.06v.

    I didnt get steller results with my mobile 2400+, i knew i wouldnt right when i opened the box, the core was very purple in color. If you look at the picture of hte cpu at the website above it is PURE black.

    If it isn't a P6 then it isn't a processor

  8. that sounds right. there are mobile tbreds around.
    512k cache defines Barton.

    P.S. with my XP-M2500+ even though it "has" a stock multipler of 14x i could only select 6x to 12.5x in the bios.
    (KT333 chipset, so im limited to 167fsb)

    There is a program thoguh called CPU MSR that may let u dynamically raise your multipler in windows... doesnt seem to work on nvidia chipset though :(
    (mines via, so it let me use up to 14x)

    Humm... Yould it be possible to get the XP-M 2600+ to work with higher multiplier because it ship at 16x instead of 14x.

    My MB is a A7N8X (nForce2). I would like to know if I have a "default" 16x CPU, what the BIOS/MB will let me choose/support?

    Because, If I'm still stuck at 12.5 because I have a nForce2, it would not be worth the upgrade from my t-bred clocked at 2.0GHz to a barton 2.08GHz.

    The difference in performance would not be enough. I'm really confused about getting a XP-M 2600+ or not... I would like to test it or to fins a web site that have tested XP-M on classic MB to know what to expect if we buy one.

  10. well the nforce2 can go to much higher fsb, specially if u have the latter 400fsb revision.

    so 12.5x200 still nets you 2.5Ghz.
    From what ive seen i dont think the nforce2 has my limited multipler issue...

  11. I've seen an A7N8X-Dlx hit 243FSB, sort of stable, meaning runs all games fine, not prime.
