Am I right in saying there is no physical difference between the Athlon XP mobile barton core and the Athlon XP desktop barton core? (Other than a few bridge settings)

I was interested in unlocking this retail 2800+ and came across some forums that alluded to doing that desktop-to-mobile modification.

All I really want to do is unlock the multiplier. How is that done exactly? I need instructions.

AMD XP-M 2500+ @ 2.2 GHz 46C max temp.
(2.4Ghz at 1.65Vcore and 51C under load)
Vantec Aeroflow V4A-7040 (tip-magentically driven fan FTW)
Antec SLK3700AMB w/ 120mm fans
Abit NF7-S
1024MB Infineon PC3200
Radeon 9600 Pro 256MB

While it *is* true that all Bartons are the same, it *isn't* true that all Bartons are the same.

All Barton cores are identical, and all of them are made in the same fab in Dresden, Germany.

NOT all Bartons will test out higher, or require less power to run. The ones that tested lowest were made into Thortons or lower speed Bartons, the ones that tested out better went to mid to high range XP's. Those that tested out the best became XP-M's, and the cream of that crop are the 35-watt XP-M's.

And several of us have posted in your other thread on the unlocking subject. there is an L-5 mod to make it a mobile, but since you have an NF-2 based board, it will not work.
