I've been looking for a cheap upgrade for my friends kids computer and have been looking at bundles, I've noticed that Savastore are selling this click here which looks ideal but I have certain concerns about the processor.
I'd never heard of this AMD processor and am wondering if anyone has one of these and can give me a link to how well they perform. The kids have a 1 gig Duron at the moment but the motherboard and processor are both U/S hence the upgrade. I've done a Google search but all I've found are press releases nothing about how well the chips perform compared with say a Duron or Sempron. All help appreciated especially from anyone who has got one of these processors.
Yeah guys it isn't the same as an Athlon or any of the other processors thats why I was hoping someone can comment on how well they perform. I would hate to buy one only to find it was actually slower than the processor its replacing, I realise the specs say its faster but thats only part of the story. Anyone got one of these "budget" chips?
Savastore's site does not give much details on the chip. The AMD Geode processors were originally integrated in to motherboards and low powered, it appears they are stand alone chips now. There is some info on the AMD website.
Personally, I'd steer clear, as there is little info on them, so they probably aren't that great. Also, I'm not fond of PC Chips motherboards, they aren't great performers and they have a habbit of failing on me!
