What's the difference between mp's and xp's if placed in a dual processor motherboard (tyan and/or asus). I think they have the same cache sizes, and both work as dual processors. Just... what's the difference? I heard the mp has smp enabled and xp has smp disabled, but if it has smp disabled, how does it run in the dual processor systems?

and xp has smp disabled

It's not. AMD just simply doesn't support SMP for Athlon XP.

:smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.

well MP's are guaranteed by amd to always work in a dual cpu environment.
XP's typically DO work allso, but there are no guarantees, and you wont get a replacement if they dont work.
