AMD Athlon CPU types

  Pusherman 16:30 08 Oct 2003

I've just been top the Microdirect website (click here) and have been looking at the AMD Athlon XP CPU's and have noticed two types of format, for example; the AMD Athlon CPU XP 2400 is described as being socket 462 whereas the AMD Athlon CPU XP 2600 is described as being socket A. What is the difference between the two, is there one?

Thanks, Pusherman.

But you need to know what the core of the SPU is as there are two types of XP the Palomino what I have was created for laptops as it's speed step technology. And Thoroughbred xp not as good
