AMD 3000+ Registers 256 L2 Cache Tags: CPUs BIOS Cache AMD Processors Last response: September 2, 2008 6:49 AM in CPUs Share cnsdave September 2, 2008 5:39:03 AM I recently bought a used AMD 3000+ FSB 333Mhz processor. My Bios is registering the chip as an XP2700+. When I run WPCUID it says the Processor string is AMD 2700+ and has only 256M L2 cache. The label on the CPU is: AXDA3000DKV4D Y850994206854 AQXEA0402MPWM AMD 1999 I've never heard of a Barton CPU with 256 L2 cache? Any explanation would be helpful. P.S.
