Will my motherboard (ECS K7S5A) be able to Support the AMD Athlon "Thoroughbred" XP 2000+?

Have same Board am runnig athlon 1.2G

According to manual will accept:

Athlon 650-1.4GHz
Duron 550-950MHz FSB 200MHz

Looks like we need a new Mobo to upgrade.

Yeah I looked at the manual and it says it supports Athlon XP 1500+~2000+ but I would like to know if this is the Thoroughbred ones?
