AMD K6-2+ availability?

Does anyone have a URL, email address, phone or fax number for any company that can supply AMD K6-2+ 500 and 550MHz CPU's in ones and twos?

  1. I would consider buying the K6-III+ instead. The larger L2 cache should give you a nice performance boost and they're cheaper. Users on the <A HREF="http://www.amdzone.com" target="_new">AmdZone</A> forum have pretty consistently gotten them to overclock to 550, even 600 with a good HSF. I just got mine from <A HREF="http://www.softwareandstuff.com" target="_new">SoftwareAndStuff</A> for $60. I haven't had the chance to try it yet, as I'm waiting on a new BIOS EPROM from Epox for compatibility on my MB. Some other vendors are listiing the K6-III+ 450 on <A HREF="http://www.pricewatch.com" target="_new">Pricewatch</A> in the "Processors - PC \ K6-III 3DNow" section.
  2. I got my AMD K6-2+/500 at <A HREF="http://www.vegapc.com" target="_new">http://www.vegapc.com</A>

    Screw it, stupid thing won't take what I tell it to (less than 100 characters too)
  3. The two motherboards I wish to upgrade do not support the lower core voltage that the K6-3+ requires.
  4. Thanks, I'll check the URL. :-)
  5. Just had a look at those processor listings and they look to me to be K6-III 450+'s with 2.0V core not the K6-III Plus mobile processors with 1.8V core. But it's hard to tell for sure from the listings. It would explain why they are so cheap though.
  6. any + k6 is the mobile version. The only 1.8v k6-3+ in existance would be the one on tomshardware review. 2.0v k6-3+ is what you want as the 1.8v ones do not really exist.
    the addition of 192kb l2 cache is not going to reduce the voltage requirements.
  7. In that case it may well work on an Asus P/1-P55T2P despite the recent Tom's Hardware table to the contrary. I can only see 450MHz versions available though and need the processor to run quietly so I want a quiet fan. The max speed available on the Asus board would be 500MHz and another motherboard I have, a FIC PA2013, would take a 550MHz processor. Hmmmm...
  8. the K6 is not a decent choice , as the Conroes are thebest performing CPus at the moment.
