Very interesting...although i always figured it was possible...same thing is probably possible with the celerons (boy wouldnt that be nice)

Fat chance, AMD cuts the circuits on the pin grid, Intel blows them on the die, as far as I know.

Right. You can't enable hardware that's been fried. Besides, good luck finding bridges to connect on a Celeron.

But if he did a little microsurgery, removing the core from the pin grid array, opening the die, he could probably jump the circuites with a .000018mm pencil lead...and change his multipliers too!

Woot, change his Celeron 1100 Tualatin to a PIII 1533/512k Tualatin!

Wow! An 0.000018mm pencil lead. I want one! Screw the Celeron 1100 Tualatin turned into a PIII 1533/512k Tualatin, I want that damned pencil!

Wouldn't it just be easier to throw a few hundred Celerons into a mono-filament cuisinart, bake them in a kiln, and if the laws of probability that'd have me winning the lottery are kind enough, end up with a super multi-cored CPU cluster monstrosity?

Naw my celery is prolly based on the Tualatin-256 core not the 512...i dont think all tullys were built with 512kb of L2...that would be wastefull...

I still think it is possible...intel seems to be using resistors to define Hi and Lo bits (just look on the bottom of any cpu) but then again...fat chance of finding thre right 1...

Also i think intel uses an EEPROM on the chip to program the multi...but i doubt anyone knows for sure (but intel of course)...

On another note...i am getting oscillators for my AGP bus mod today...so my tully will prolly go a little further (150mhz fsb?)

I'd sell you one, but you'd want your money back when I told you there's no place to buy replacement leads. And you'd break all the leads instantly. So I'd loose money.

Wait...you've found a way to modify the AGP clock? Where can I find that information?

I will post i guide after it works (or i hope i does)...

Mostly intel specsheets...i found a very vague website make a refrence to it...

Just search at intels website and type in GCLKO and you will find the pin on the chipset that will be moded (graphics clock out)...

It is a very easy mod once you know where to "inject" the signal...which i will show in another post (with pictures step by step through the mod)

Well, if it is real it's with a proc not yet released in the USA.

The Morgan core Durons don't have the L2 bridge configuration described in the article. Instead, they have the surface mounted bridges like the Tbirds.

Interesting that it's same group of people introducing this mod as the original 9500->9700 hack.

I don't care about how the lead couldn't possibly <i>not</i> break and how I'd never find replacement leads. I just want it for bragging rights. :p 

Now if I could only find a monofilament whip and a fully-automatic 10-gauge shotgun loaded with a clip of a hundred shells of silver flichette. Then I could go werewolf hunting! :o  And I'd poke their eyes out with my new mechanical pencil and keep advanging the lead until it went right up into their brain and then snap it off. He he he he he.





...Or not.

Problem is I don't think a hole that small would damage enough brain cells to cause noticable impact.
