Hi
I went to the computer market in canberra, at natex, and while i was
there i look at serveral athlons and there serial numbers, i found several nice .18 k7-600mhz athlons week 11 2000 for around $355, but i also found some .25 650mhz week 36 99 for more i dont remember, these athlons (650) im pretty sure, are remarked.

check it out at this page, there were a lot of these, they are mostly 500->650 cores, and they all seem to be in week 36, also i looked at the edges of these cases, and they were all rounded, so i have very good grounds for saying that there were alot of 650mhz remarked cores at the computer market, and prob other ones too in australia.


My advice is to bring it to AMD's attention. If they're anything like Intel in this regard they will be VERY interested.
