No silly questions, right ....

I keep reading how the amd xp processor is built to get the most out of systems running win xp ... so ... if I am running win 2000, how much difference will it make using an amd mp processor vs. an amd xp processor??

thanks,

They both will do equally well. The XP has nothing to do with operating systems. The difference between Athlon XP and Athlon MP is that MP has been certified to run on a motherboard that supports multi-processors.

That, and the AthlonMP comes with its multiplier unlocked. :wink:

Really? Do all MP's come unlocked? And they work the same as Athlons or XP's?

What about performance? Does it do even more work per clock like the XP already has or is it just that it supports multiple Processors? Btw, its pricing is extremly well put, just a few bucks higher than its counterpart..

The XP and the MP are the same processor. I am not sure anyone knows how they pick which XP processor is going to be certified for MP. If anyone does please tell us.
