But why am I getting a slow CPU, I thought the mulipliers are locked so the BIOS wouldn't have a say. I'm geting a mulitplier of 15 (15x133 = 2000MHz) when I should be getting a mulitplier of 15.5 (15.5x133 = 2066MHz) or of 16 (16x133 = 2133MHz)
2000MHz(133x15.0) is the correct speed for an Athlon MP 2600+, model 10(Barton).
The Athlon MP 2800+, model 10 or Athlon MP 2600+, model 8
run at 2133MHz(133x16.0).QUOTE
I've looked all over the AMD site and haven't found any info on a Barton core 2600+MP, and besides this one is running slow.
You can find the appropriate datasheet for the AThlon MP processor, model 10(Barton( here
