    The T'Bred started at 2200+ and was a huge flop, the 2400+ and 2600+ were just introduced and will be here next month with lower voltages. Your 2000+ is a Palamino core, which is .18 micron. My money is on Barton, if it ever gets here (doubtful), and if that doesn't come out, I'm bailing and moving to Hammer.

    Clawhammer(Next Gen Athlon) will begin it's life at .13 SOI micron and I believe Sledgehammer (Opteron) will be at .09 micron...I think...Clawhammer will move to .09 SOI micron sometime in 2003.
     
  7. for those of you with palamino core xp chips (UofEEE and Goatman) are you able to upgrade to t'bred chips such as the 2200+ without changing the motherboard. Meaning, does your mobo support those chips.

    Yes sir. All it really requires is that you flash your BIOS to the latest version.
