Athlon XP2700 + and XP2800 + in the test at HardTecs4U
After we were able to take a look at the new top CPUs from AMD on October 1st, 2002, the day of the official presentation, our colleagues from HardTecs4U have now also taken a detailed look at the processors from 2400+ - 2800+ .
In the end, you could use the 'Athlon XP 2700+ and 2800+ im Test - Back to the top thanks to FSB166? 'The observations and unfortunately also problems only confirm. The brand new FSB333 with its 166MHz achieves a blatant increase in performance in exceptional cases, but seems to cause some boards a lot of problems and stable operation itself is far from being a functional guarantee. Because all too often this security is bought at the price of slow timing, so that the theoretical increase in speed is amortized. The guys can also clearly underline the results from our nForce 2 Preview . With an FSB of 166MHz, the nVidia chipset accelerates beyond the reach, at 133MHz it is enough to reach the KT333/400.
