Just a couple of queries....

What is the fastest AMD processor?

I've also heard AMD is popular with gamers, how come?

THe fastest is the 3000+, and gamers like them because they are cheap, and faster in games than a equivelant P4. (debatable so don't start another Intel vs. AMD fight)

Cool thanks for the info No intention of starting a fight, just doing some college work and wanted a few opinions.

Do you know where i could find any benchmarks of the AMD being better at running games and why this is thought?

Thanks

Is there much difference between the 2ghz AMD 2400 XP
and the 2600 XP Barton chip?

More effecient? :D ;)

Yes, but krux is right, the Barton core is highly optimised. While running at the same speed can perform better.

I know they were meant to be separate points but "3000+" and "cheap" shouldn't be put in the same sentence :D :rolleyes:

I know i have queried this already, but what makes an AMD system a good gaming system, is it basically down to price??

XP2700 and XP3000 are the same speed, just a 512 on board memory on 3000 compared to 376??ish on xp2700, i got the 2700 as its 200 quid cheeper :)

There is no 2600+ barton.
Only 2500+, 2800+ and 3000+, and in a while the 400mhz 3200+\

There are 2 2600+'s.

1. 2600 with 266mhz Tbred B. running at X mhz
2. 2600 with 33mhz Tbred B. running at X- a little bit mhz.

I can't remember the X that's why, but the 333mhz 2600
is running at a little less than the 266mhz version.

2200+ = 1.8 GHz
2400+ = 2.0 GHz
2500+ Barton = 1.83 GHz
2600+ 266 FSB = 2.13 GHz
2600+ 333 FSB = 2.08 GHz
2700+ = 2.17 GHz

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
