Does anyone here know FOR SURE if an Athlon MP 2600+ will work in a plain consumer motherboard? (A crappy K7S5A)

The mobo can take regular athlons up to 2600+ with the 266mhz FSB, so I think it should work...

Anybody know for sure though?

And by the way, do Athlon MP's offer any benefits like a larger cache? If memory serves, they don't, but you guys would know.

Thanks fellas,

Hi, it's a six month old post and i just arrived here searching for MP articles.
I have the same mainboard and was thinking about upgrading my XP to MP. ECS website says that MP 2000+ is supported. You may have to update your BIOS.

I haven't tried it. After reading your old posts (year 2001) it seems that going for the XP2600+ the mainboard supports makes more sense.
