AMD Athlon XP 2600+ 266FSB/333FSB

What performance difference is there between the AMD Athlon XP 2600+ Cache Socka 266MHZ?

My M/board will only support the 266FSB and I am curious as to why there are 2 versions of this chip.

(I haven't seen the 266FSB on Dabs, Watford or PC world).

"I am curious as to why there are 2 versions of this chip"

Because some people, such as you, don't have motherboards with an FSB of 166/333Mhz.

You maybe curious to hear they will be producing a 2600+Barton very soon.

Although I dont know whether it will be a 333 or 400fsb.
