More about which chips thoroughbred
  1. If your looking to overclock, XP 2400+ is what you want. It has the thoroughbred-B core and 266MHz FSB. There are some lesser athlons out there with the thoroughbred-A core, but you probably don't want those as they don't overclock much further, if at all, than the palomino.

    <i>It's your world kid!!!</i>
  2. Up to 2400+ = 266 FSB. 2600+ and up = 333 FSB. Take care.

    Hang in there. It can only get better!
  3. Whoops! I didn't read your question well. Sorry. 2200+ TB A core. 2400+ TB B core. Both are 266 FSB. All I have see with the 2600+ is 333 FSB. 2100+ and below are Palimeno core. I did see on the road map where AMD was going to change the 1700+ and up from .18 to .13 TB core. I haven't seen one on the market yet though. Take care.

    Hang in there. It can only get better!
  4. <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduct.asp?submit=manufactory&catalog=343&manufactory=1028&DEPA=1&sortby=14&order=1" target="_new">Newegg</A> has a AMD Athlon XP 1800+ listed with a Thoroughbred core for $79. Is this correct or a typo?

  5. Cool. I will check it out. Thanks.

  6. The Thoroughbred 2600+ has two flavors. A 2.13ghz 16x133(266) model and a 2.08ghz 12.5x(166)333.

    Dichromatic for your viewing plesure...
  7. Here are the XP CPUs :

    Athlon XP model 6 (Palomino)
    1500+ (1333Mhz @ 266Mhz FSB)
    1600+ (1400Mhz @ 266Mhz FSB)
    1700+ (1467Mhz @ 266Mhz FSB)
    1800+ (1533Mhz @ 266Mhz FSB)
    1900+ (1600Mhz @ 266Mhz FSB)
    2000+ (1667Mhz @ 266Mhz FSB)
    2100+ (1733Mhz @ 266Mhz FSB)

    Athlon XP model 8 (Thoroughbred A+B)
    1700+ (1467Mhz @ 266Mhz FSB)
    1800+ (1533Mhz @ 266Mhz FSB)
    1900+ (1600Mhz @ 266Mhz FSB)
    2000+ (1667Mhz @ 266Mhz FSB)
    2100+ (1733Mhz @ 266Mhz FSB)
    2200+ (1800Mhz @ 266Mhz FSB)
    2400+ (2000Mhz @ 266Mhz FSB)
    2600+ (2133Mhz @ 266Mhz FSB)
    2600+ (2083Mhz @ 333Mhz FSB)
    2700+ (2167Mhz @ 333Mhz FSB)
    2800+ (2250Mhz @ 333Mhz FSB)

    Here's how you do it to differenciate them:
    If the product code starts with AXDA before the model number (example: AXDA2700DKV3D), then you've got a T-Bred. If the same code ends with a D (as in the example), it supports a 333Mhz FSB. If it ends with a C, it has a 266Mhz FSB. A way to make absolutely sure visually that you've got a "B" is to buy a 333MHz FSB CPU. Die size is also 4 sq.mm. bigger with the "B". So good luck if you want to measure it (high precision tool required).
    If the product code starts with only AX before the model number (example: AX2100DMT3C), then that's a Palomino core CPU.

  8. All the 2100+ I have ever seen have the palomino core.
  9. D'oh! I just found out I made a booboo. Model 6 is actually the Palomino core.
    You might wanna have a look at <A HREF="http://www6.tomshardware.com/cpu/02q4/021001/xp_2800-07.html#comparison_tbred_quotbquot_vs_tbred_quotaquot_vs_palomino" target="_new">this</A> though. There WERE Palominos up to 2100+, but there ARE also T-Breds at 2100+.

  10. Well I'm building a pc for my father and I'm going to go the AMD route because of price. He doesn't game at all but when I go over I would like the option of playing SOFII or something similar. Now would you guys go for the 1800+ on Newegg or just go higher for the performance?

  11. A T-Bred 1800+ will satisfy all your needs.
    No need for a faster CPU now. Get a faster graphics with the money you would be ready to spend on a faster CPU. Or else, save that money for a CPU upgrade later, when faster chips become cheaper.
    Get a mobo that supports 166Mhz FSB.
    And when 2800+ T-Bred "B" CPUs become cheap, you could switch.

  12. I can agree with you there.. At a lan party I attened this past weekend, I saw UT2003 and a slew of other ames run great on a PII 400 oc'ed to 600 with a GF3 TI card that was OC'ed. Save on the CPU (Got that same one) and up your Graphics, storage, ect..

    If the Scatman can do it so can you...

  13. Thanks guys. I will stick with the XP 1800+ and go heavier on the graphics card.
