SlotA Showdown! (0 Comments) (link)
 Sunday, 20-August-2000  19:00:52 (GMT +10) - by Agg

With AMD's recent moves towards a pure SocketA CPU line, I thought it might be interesting to review the 3 major types of SlotA processors. This simple plan turned into a 5-big-page monster, with a couple of pages on identifying the different types of CPU's (both physically and via software), performance comparison of "A", "C" and Thunderbird SlotA CPU's and some artificial benchmarks highlighting the effect of the smaller, faster L2 cache on the TBird.

Finally, a few notes on getting it working on the KA7 - in fact, I was able to run stably at 124MHz FSB and even POST at 133MHz, which is well higher than I am able to with either of the Classic Athlons here. I thought Thunderbirds were supposed to be LESS compatible than Classic Athlons on KX133 boards? :)

Anyway, lots of pics, lots of benchmarks, lots of info. I hope you enjoy it!
