It is 2.8ghz but only shows up as 1.67 someone else had this prob and got advised to change the power in the bios but this doesn't work????

As Far as I know, there is no such thing as a 2.8Ghz sempron. Do you know the model number.

A 754 pin 2800+ will run at 1.6Ghz. click here. A 939 pin sempron will run at 1.8Ghz.

Sorry that should read " a 939 pin 3000+ sempron will run at 1.8Ghz."

No such thing?? Why that lying evil person I'll kill him!!!! Sorry oh maybe it is just socket 462 1.67 would a 1.4 Athlon be better then????

The sempron 2800+ runs at 2.0Ghz or 1.6Ghz. This will depend on the model number.

For quite a few years AMD have named their processors without direct reference to the clock speed.

ie a 2800+ is NOt a 2.8GHz

The idea was make speed less of an issue - (some hope) but to give customers an idea of how the CPU rated against Intel

so an AMD 2800+ (1.67Ghz) would give comparable performance to an Intel 2.8Ghz processor

Hmm I know that I guess the guy I bought it off didn't oh well it still works great! I guess if I wanted I could over clock good idea??

Would a 1.4 Athlon be better???

  bremner 17:47 06 Oct 2005

No
