athlon pro 2800+ vs athlon xp 2800+

Discussion in 'AMD Thunderbird' started by Serge Lacombe, Feb 5, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    ECS sells mainboards (L7VMM3) with integrated Athlon PRO 2800+. I would like
    to know the differences between that cpu and the athlon XP 2800+.

    Download the L7VMM3 User Manual
    It's a Duron that most Etailers tend to call "Athlon"
    It's a duron at 133/266 fsb (I dont think it's an applebred)
    uses a KM266 Chipset (NB) VT8235 (SB)

    I have nearly bought one of these types of boards (PCCHIPS&ECS have them)
    plus one other group (cant rem)..
    If you get it then let us know how you get on.. I think they are "okay"
    value for money, but the asrock mobo's might give you an option that's just
    as cheap, and you still end up with an athlon XP..

    I suggest you email ECS for the actual part number. I think it's a 1.6GHz
    Duron though, since you can buy this cpu/MB combo for about $75, which is
    cheaper than just the 2800+ cpu alone at $115. Bad advertisers. I've seen
    this combo listed as anythin from 1.6 Duron, 2300+, amd up to 2800+. ECS
    website doesn't specify cpu other than it's integrated. I think it's
    soldered in w/o a socket so you can't change it. Here's a discription from
    a pricewatch add. Note that 2800 is model number of the board, not the
    ECS L7VMM3 PRO2800 Socket A mboard MFN L7VMM3 PRO2800(ATHLON XP1600+)

    Just a guess, but it may be out there with different cpu's on it depending
    on availability at time of manufacture. Take a look here.

    ECS do say in their documentation that it's a duron at 133/266 fsb..
    They dont go on to say what speed it runs at BUT.. I have heard many things
    about these boards (and the ilk) and I am fairly sure that they are
    overclock'd or nonstandard spec durons..
