Hi

Do you need a special motherboard to run P4 512Kb Cache(dubbed A) processors?

I'm currently using an ASUS P4T-E which does support the 478pin P4 chips, but will it support the extra cache straight off? Or do I need to buy another motherboard?

Thanks

Thanks!

Cool - that's good to hear considering I just brought that MBoard recently.

Just to be clear - it will work, but will it utilise the the full 512kb of cache, or just half?

a bios update may-or-may not be needed...

Yes it will use all of the cache regardless.

But the 2GHz is faster at default speed and probably overclocks better.

Juin, do you know what you're talking about?

I don't have an Athlon XP, I asked about Northwood...
