Mobile XP-M 2500+ or Mobile XP-M 2600+

Archived from groups: alt.comp.hardware.overclocking.amd (More info?)

I found a mobile XP-M 2500+ for $83 and the mobile XP-M 2600+ for $93.
Which one is best bang for the buck? I always see the 2500 as the
favorite, but for another $10 I'm thinking the 2600+ on paper seems
the better choice.

Comments? Thanks.

    Why are you bothering to reply to the above post if you are not going to
    attempt to answer his/her question? We really don't care about your
    XP-M-2400...

    I went for the 2600+. Eventhough the chips have the same core, I think they
    are separated on quality and you could get a higher overclock at a lower
    voltage with the 2600+, so for $10 bucks I would go for it.

    It is running at 216x11.5@1.825 V, but I think with the new BIOS upgrade I
    might be able to push it up a bit higher or be able to drop the core down.

    If you check the other posts, I have loaded the Nov 2004, DFI Bios and the
    system seems to be Prime95 stable at a lower core voltage at the moment it
    is running 1.0 V lower.

    That's a bit harsh, Larry. He does make a point that his cheaper mobile CPU
    goes well. If he can get the CPU to 2.5GHz without excessive Vcore then it
    could be a candidate for "best bang for the buck".
