sempron thoroughbred 2200+ is supposed to be rated at 1.5GHz. all is fine when i use central brain identifier except for the central processor which shows it as AMD Athlon MP 1.8Ghz Processor. i wonder why the processor is rated at 1.5GHz but CBI shows it as 1.8. thanks guys. appreciate the help.

cbid bug? What does CPU-Z say? The code AMSN stands for an MP processor.

cpu-z identifies it as a sempron 2200+ @ 1.5GHz.
take a look at these:

and

according to the CBI, the:
1. central processor (AMD Athlon MP 1.80GHz Processor)
2. OPN number (AMSN2200DKT3C)
point to an Athlon MP "Thoroughbred" processor
while the:
1. TSC clock (~1.5Ghz)
2. FSB speed (~333Mhz)
3. clock ratio (9.0x)
4. voltage (~1.60V)
5. CPU string (AMD Sempron 2200+)
point to a Sempron "Thoroughbred-B" processor.

so which is it really?
and i wonder what would happen if i decrease the FSB to 266MHz and increase the multiplier to 13.5x at the bios.
thanks guys.

Socket A Semprons are multilpier locked, even the BIOS would allow changing the multi, it will have no effect. If it does have effect, it is not a Sempron CPU. The best is to look up the OPN on the die of the CPU to get definite identification.

ah i see [short of removing the fan and listing the OPN on the processor die] if i increase the multiplier in the bios but the clock ratio still remains at 9.0x [as identified by either cpu-z or CBI], then can i safely say that it is a sempron 2200+?
