I just bought a AMD XP2600 Athlon CPU that's supposed to be running at 2.6gHz...but when I look in Belarc and other system hardware displays, it says it's a 1.15gHz AMD Athlon XP. What gives and are they trying to take me for a ride? Comments? Thx
One runs at 2133MHz on a 266MHz FSB and the other at 2083MHz on a 333MHz FSB.
It is probably just the initial setup in the BIOS in order to start the CPU working. You now have to make the appropriate adjustments to to the FSB and multiplier, to make the CPU work at its specified speed.
OK...I set the cpu frequency in bios to 166 and for the first time, it's reporting that, indeed, it's an AMD XP2600 now running at 1.91gHz. I didn't see a multiplier jumper in the manual...Anything else to speed this baby up? Thanks
