Solved What CPU is this? Circa 1996 Tags: CPUs Socket 7 Last response: November 11, 2012 10:56 PM in CPUs Share stickg1 a b à CPUs November 2, 2012 8:42:57 PM I found my first PC in my parent's attic a few weeks ago. I tore into it today to check out what I was working with when I was 10 years old. It's a socket 7, I think it might be an AMD K6 300MHz just looking for a second opinion.

Share stickg1 a b à CPUs November 2, 2012 8:55:21 PM Yeah that's what I'm thinking, it was in this motherboard: http://www.bcmcom.com/tech/sq575/sq575.htm That might help narrow it down. Also on the front panel of the case it had an LED displaying 300 for the speed of the CPU and there was a SICK turbo button and I'm not even sure if it worked or what it did. It was so long ago. m 0 l Related resources MS Works circa 1996 - Forum What's My Old Gaming PC Worth?
