I am considering to build a Dual Athlon machine. I am cofused about the difference between XP and MP Athlons. Is the Athlon XP identical with Athlon MP?

I would also really like to know this. Has anybody tried a couple in a K7. The A XP does have the same core, maby its like the celerons it will work most of the time but not all? Please & Thanks
From what I've read, yes. But AMD test the MP's specifically to ensure they work in dual configs. They will replace an MP if it won't work with another. XP's aren't put through the extra testing and therefore AMD doesn't support using them in a dual configuration.
They most likely will work. Some may not. They are the same core as each other though.
XP seems to have better packaging. I'm gonna try for dual XP's.
