Well, if you're in the same boat as me, you may be wondering what flavor of CPU to stick in your computer. With the Intel's Prescott, and AMD's Opteron 64-bit CPU slated to appear, the question may be a bit hard to answer. For those of you who don't want to wait, the crew over at OCAddiction have taken AMD's 2600+ 333MHz CPU to the slate to see if it's worth your hard earned buck.
Today we're playing with the AMD AthlonXP 2600+ that ships from the factory at 333Mhz front side bus. Here at OCAddiction we admit it up front, we're speed whores. We really don't care what it says on the box so long as it's faster. That said, we've been excited to play with these new Thoroughbreds and see if they are really that much improved over their 266Mhz bus little brothers. We're adopting pretty much a just the facts approach to this review. A little about the CPU, a few key features, some CPU benchmarks, and then we'll wrap it up.More information @ OCAddiciton
