Hi,

I want to upgrade my MP1800+ to MP2800+'s

I have a Tyan Tiger MPX S2466N,
which for some magic reason will not accept a Barton MP2800+.

Tyan:
The MP2600+ CPU's definantly will work on your S2466N motherboard
So WHY will the MP2800+ not work? AMD Techsupport guru's?

Tyan techsupport says the following:
QUOTE Different design means different design so the VRMS and etc. are not present
for the faster CPU's.  So not only is the bios not going to recognize the
CPU's correctly but the motherboard itself could potentially also have
stability issues in regards to these faster CPU's.  If the CPU's were
exactly the same then they would both be listed as supported and that is
obviously not the case.
In my opinion the 2600+ and the 2800+ are the same AMD Athlon Model 10.
So I can not belief their respons.

Anybody any luck with these barton's MP2800+?

Or should I just buy the Mp2600+?
They only cost 186 iso 239 for the 2800+

Anybody a reasonable answer to my problem?

I found the following at tyans site:
Note: AMD Athlon MP 2800+ support applies to S2466N-4M version only, S2466N has maximum of Athlon MP 2600+ support.

Do you have the 4M version of the motherboard? if so, the latest bios for the 4M board will let you use the 2800+ CPU's.

The 2800+ is made with the Barton core, the 2600+ can be either a Thoroughbred or a Barton Core.

Maybe for some reason your motherboard will not support Barton cores??

Later

I own the S2466N not the S2466N-4M:-(
I asked this question to Tyan techsupport, and they replied
QUOTE Tyan:
The MP2600+ CPU's definantly will work on your S2466N motherboard

and later they also replied, on a question what was the barton update in bios 1.04
QUOTE That updated the CPU Microcoding for the S2466N so that the 2600+ Barton
CPU's would be picked up correctly.  We found that without this update the
2600+ Barton CPU's would not be picked up correctly.

see this link

Since
> >> 2600+ AMSN2600DUT4C
> >> 2800+ AMSN2800DUT4C
are both bartons....

WHY THE [content edited] does the MP2800+ does not work !!!

tnx

AMD MP specs' ">http://139.95.253.214/SRVS/CGI...,Sxi=18,Case=obj(3720)

This page says that the MP2600 is a model 8, but the barton cored MP2600 would be a model 10 I suppose. Took ages to find specs

Several web sites are offering the MP2800 at 333fsb. I know that it is a Barton core and I have seen how to enable an XP barton to MP but is there a Motherboard that will support 333MHz fsb?
PS Haven't seen anything that will OC to 166MHz, so I suppose 200MHz is out of the question?
