these are the stats for an athlon MP... using the 2400+ as example...

this is the info for an athlon XP 2400+

basically with the MP you have certain changes in the architecture that allow the cpu to be run concurrently with another processor without problems... you can't do that with an XP... concerning there being just one jumper setting difference... possible though I had never heard of this... as you can also see there is NO difference in cache... l1 and l2 cache is the same and there is no L3 like in the k6-3 gen of cpu's...

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
