Somethings wrong X2 6000 Tags: CPUs Windows Vista Cache Processors Last response: April 18, 2007 7:53 PM in CPUs Share lllco2lll April 15, 2007 5:13:48 PM hmm so i built my system and what not, and for some odd reason my Cpu model is unknown, though it does say 3.01 ghz. And when I tried to perform vista ready everything passed except for my cpu. I'm pretty sure an x2 6000 should at least pass the minimum requirement for being vista ready correct? checking nvidia control panel it shows both of my processors and heres the information for one of em. well they're exactly the same anyways: Brand = AMD Processor model unknown Family = 15 Model = 3 Stepping = 3 L1 Instr Cache Size = 65536 L1 Data Cache Size = 65536 L2 Cache Size = 1048576 L3 Cache Size = 0 Feature flags: CPUID 00000001[edx]=0x178bfbff: fpu : Processor supported vme : Processor supported de : Processor supported pse : Processor supported msr : Processor supported pae : Processor supported mce : Processor supported cx8 : Processor supported apic : Processor supported sep : Processor supported mtrr : Processor supported pge : Processor supported mca : Processor supported cmov : Processor supported pat : Processor supported pse36 : Processor supported cflush : Processor supported ds : No processor support acpi : No processor support mmx : Processor supported fxsr : Processor supported sse1 : Processor supported sse2 : Processor supported ss : No processor support htt : Processor supported tm : No processor support sbf : No processor support CPUID 00000001[ecx]=0x00002001: tm2 : No processor support est : No processor support cid : No processor support sse3 : Processor supported CPUID 80000001[edx]=0xebd3fbff: fpu : Processor supported vme : Processor supported de : Processor supported pse : Processor supported tsc : Processor supported msr : Processor supported pae : Processor supported mce : Processor supported cx8 : Processor supported syscall : Processor supported mtrr : Processor supported pge : Processor supported mca : Processor supported cmov : Processor supported pat : Processor supported pse36 : Processor supported mp : No processor support nx : Processor supported ammx : Processor supported mmx : Processor supported fxsr : Processor supported lm : Processor supported x3dnow : Processor supported 3dnow : Processor supported Is that the correct specs for an x2 6000? Anways just in case its the bios in the motherboard its an evga 590 sli mobo. and I scored really low in the cpu section for 3dmark 06 thats to be expected right? More about : somethings wrong 6000 RichPLS April 15, 2007 5:30:39 PM Are you running the latest BIOS? lllco2lll April 15, 2007 5:39:16 PM no not that I know of. I know that must be the problem, but do you think it'll anyway affect performance if it doesn't know the name of the cpu?

Is it really necessary though? I mean if my bios doesn't recognize the name will it in anyways affect performance? If not I could just leave it alone correct? jitpublisher a b à CPUs April 15, 2007 7:17:14 PM If the BIOS does not recognize the processor, it most likely will have the FSB and multiplier set wrong, as well as the voltage. Check and adjust manually, they are most likely not correct. fpdoc April 15, 2007 7:24:05 PM YES. I upgraded to a 5600+. Both this and the 6000+ needed a BIOS update to recognize F3 stepping. I did this before I installed the chip. make sure your BIOS version supports the F3 stepping. ReelTrouble April 18, 2007 7:53:58 PM I dropped a 5600+ CPU in the same board (eVGA 590 SLI) and was seeing the same performance issues you're talking about. I emailed tech support last night and it looks like they should be posting the bios later today. "Answered By Everardo P (4/18/2007 10:48:30 AM): Andrew, The BIOS will be posted later today at www.evga.com/support/drivers. EVGA" FWIW - The 5600+ is working at the proper voltage but it's just performing like a lower cpu under the currently installed bios (Release number 681W1P25 - from 8/18/2006).
