AMD 2600 with 200 fsb.

  Beas-Knees 19:29 12 Dec 2003

Can anyone please tell me if such a processor exists (AMD 2600 200 fsb) or have all the AMD 2600 cpu,s been 266 or 333 fsb,s

Nope the 2600 are only 333

According to the AMd site they were only made in 266 & 333 fsb`s

Trackrats right.

2600+ is available in 266 and 333 but is very difficult to find in 266 now.

Yes the 2600+ comes in 266Mhz and 333Mhz.

From the AMD website.

Can I install a 266MHz front-side bus AMD Athlon™ processor in a motherboard that only supports a 200MHz front-side bus?

266MHz FSB AMD Athlon™ Processor Runs Slower on a 200MHz FSB Motherboard

An AMD Athlon™ processor that supports a 266MHz front-side bus (FSB) will work on a motherboard that only supports a 200MHz front-side bus, but the processor will operate at a lower frequency. This is a result of the processor's multiplier. The function of the multiplier is to multiply the bus frequency to derive the processor frequency. An FSB that is set to operate at 200MHz is operating at a frequency lower than expected for an AMD Athlon processor that supports a 266MHz FSB. Consequently, a 266MHz FSB processor will operate at a lower frequency if the FSB is only running at 200MHz.

For example, a 1000MHz AMD Athlon processor that supports a 266MHz FSB requires a 133MHz system clock (266MHz FSB) and a 7.5x multiplier. This results in a processor frequency of 1000MHz (system clock x multiplier = processor frequency). However, if the motherboard's FSB is set to 200MHz (100MHz system clock), the processor will only operate at 750MHz (100MHz clock x 7.5 multiplier = 750MHz CPU speed).""

So basically you could put a xp2600+ with a 266Mhz chip and multiplier set at 16. On a 200Mhz board this would give you a clock speed of 1.6Ghz. This also takes into account that your multiplier can go to 16.
