I can't find much information about this processor on internet. I am planning to purchase a laptop with AMD processor on it. I checked some different options, one with xp-m 3000+ processor on it. I am confused since different things are written for it.

1. Is the clock freq 1600 MHz ? If yes, how can it be such slower than an XP-M 2600+ which has 2000 MHz freq?

2. What is the cache for this processor? I read someplace that all XP-M processors have 128+512= 640 KB total cache. But for this processor, it seems that it has 256 KB L2 cache.

Well, basically there are two processors that are both named 'Athlon XP-M 3000+':

The first version is a 'normal' 72W DTR mobile Athlon XP-M, just like the AXP-M 2800+ but with a slightly higher clockspeed(2.2GHz) - it uses the Barton-core(model 10) with 512KB L2-cache.

The second version is currently ONLY available on Compaq/HP Notebooks(to my knowledge).
It uses the Athlon 64-based 'Dublin'-core with 256KB L2-cache.
Architecturally, it's very similar to a mobile Athlon 64, except for the smaller cache, low clockspeed and the fact that it DOES NOT support AMD64(that's why it's called an 'Athlon XP-M'.
This 'Dublin' AXP-M 3000+ uses the same Socket 754 platform as the mobile Athlon 64's, so it could easily be replaced with such a part at a later time.

Also, unlike it's 'Barton'-counterpart, the 'Dublin' AXP-M 3000+ has a max power-consumption of only 62W(vs. 72W for the AXP-M 3000+ Barton).
