Hi. I'm going to build an AMD system soon & have 2 quick questions. A local shop is advertising:
"AMD 1400 Athlon C (266fsb)" & a "AMD 1400 Palomino", with the latter being more expensive.
Can someone explain the difference (if any) between these 2 cpu's? I am buying a MSI K7Master or ABIT KG7R(when available). Will the "Palomino" work in these mobo's?
If you loan a friend $20 & never see them again, it was worth it.
More aboutathlon 1400 palomino 1400 thing
'AMD 1400 Palomino' does not yet exist on the market. Pretty big difference...
The 1.4G processor is availble in either 1.4/266 or 1.4/200 forms and both are regular Athlon Thunderbirds.
The Palomino core is the codename for the new Athlon revision supporting SSE, cpu temperature diode, lower power consumption, enhanced prefetch and SMP. It is nominally currently available in 1G and 1.2G form called AthlonMP for dual cpu server/workstation and also Mobile Athlon 4 in 1GHz, 950, 900, and 850MHz. The desktop Athlon 4 is not yet released (possibly later this month) and is speculated to debut at 1.5G. All cpus are currently built on <i>.18</i> micron silicon technology.

Uh sorry duder but you wrong, "AMD Athlon MP processors are manufactured using AMD's 0.18-micron copper process technology at Fab 30 in Dresden, Germany." Straight off AMD's website, check it out if you have doubts.....
