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+.

are you sure 2400+ has 512k L2 cache?

I hate my TI4200.

Check this article : <A HREF="http://www.fastlanehw.com/reviews.php?action=view&revid..." 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..." 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!".

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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...

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