What i wanted to point out is that there are no seperate Athlon MP-variants for Servers and Workstations('non-servers'
There are, however, different models
within the Athlon MP-line of processors(a new model denotes a more modern part with a slightly different core - usually because of a smaller manufacturing process or a different L2-cache size as well as some minor changes/bug fixes/improvements to the processors' design).QUOTE
AMD PROCESSOR -ATHLON MP 2600+ SERVER MODEL PIB BARTON
The key difference is NOT the word 'Server' but the word 'Barton' which is the codename for an Athlon XP or MP model 10.
The difference between an Athlon MP 2600+ model 8 and an Athlon MP 2600+ model 10 is that the model 8 part has 256KB of L2-cache and is clocked at 2.13GHz while the model 10 part is clocked at 2.0GHz and has 512KB
of L2-cache...that's why you CANNOT run an AMP 2600+ model 8 and an AMP 2600+ model 10 toghether.
Asus' CPU-support list
' ">http://www.asus.com/support/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx denotes that an Athlon MP 2800+, model 10(ALL AMP 2800+ are model 10) is supported as of BIOS version 1011.002.
Since clockspeed is the only difference between an Athlon MP 2800+ and an AMP 2600+ model 10, i'm pretty sure you will be fine with two
AMP 2600+ model 10 parts...even tho they're not explicitely listed as supported parts(again, one model 8 and one model 10 will NOT work).
You might want to E-mail Asus and ask them for confirmation, just to be sure.
