Works well and keeps an old PC going a bit longer.
3 May 2011
Summary: This is the highest spec CPU that my old ECS K7VMM+ motherboard can take. Apart from the heat generated off this, its a good way of keeping an old PC going a bit longer. Do not confuse this with some of the other AMD XP 2600+ chips that may run on a different FSB and may not be compatible with the...
Summary: Now Now , I know you might think my definition and usage of the word PC is irrelevant with respect to this particular product. I know a PC depends on other factors but as far as speed and performance goes this is the best processor I've used.I'm not an engineer but I cant tell you that this Athlon...
Summary: I am not a very experienced computer user, so a friend of mine set up my entire system. I cannot believe the speed of my machine. I have great video and dvd burning speeds, unlike the old IBM machine I was using before.
Summary: This is a very fast processor that sells at a bargain price. The only difficulty I had was with the installation, which had me nervous because this was my first athlon and I have heard people say that they are very tricky to install.
Summary: The AMD AthlonXP 2600+ very easy to install, but I'm disappointed with locked 11.5× multiplier with PC2700 DDR SDRAM giving 1.91GHz instead of the expected 2.08GHz. I'm using an Epox EP-8K3A+ mo-bo.
Pros: Good value for money (£50 + VAT). Powerful. c/w AMD heatsink and good multi-lingual installation instructions.
Cons: Getting it out of the plastic box. Locked multiplier.
