Thanks flecc, all this BB talk and links to this AIDA software & you've got me questioning my set up....!!!!
OK, this is what ive got. PCCHIPS 810LMR Bios Flashed 512 SD RAM (133mhz) AMD XP2000+ running 98se..... Everything else is relevant
Right at the bottom of the aida software you can run bench marks with the above setup I can achieve the following 300mb/s WRITE & 618mb/s READ. according to the result's window this is about equal to a PII 650, pah.... pah....
Looking at the topish end of the table my processor with either EPOX (EP-8KHA) or MSI (KT3 Ultra-URA) with 2100DDR will achieve speed of approximately 1500mb/s
SERIOUSLY, just how much difference will this make to my machine if I dump the PC CHIP & SD RAM (300/618mb/s) & opt for the later at (1500/1500mb/s)
Thanks for your reply huggy..... There are many threads popping up about AMD processors & I'm now challenged with another poser in addition to my current dilema.
I have flashed my bios & the XP2000+ is working fine and coming in at 1.7ghz but the FSB according to the bios is 133mhz, yet someone else mentions the FSB as being 266mhz.... Surely with a new mobo & DDR 2100 I should be able to attain better performance!!!
