I parted an old computer, I'd like to know the specs on the cpu I pulled out.

AMD-K6-2/550AGP
2.3 CORE/3.3V I/O
A 0027MPMW

Am I correct in assuming its 550mhz?

Thanks /wacko.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wacko.gif' />

Yes that's right, a 550MHz processor. Runs warm as well.

If you intend to use it in another computer, you'd be better off with Socket A processors like the Athlon, or better like the Sempron or Athlon64.

That depends on what the computer's purpose is for though. Even 50MHz is plenty enough for some tasks.

..Suddenly brings back memories of running that old game 'Project IGI' on an overclocked K6-2 & Voodo 3/3000! Where did all those years go, I want them back ;-)
