    I am in the process of looking for a amd xp2400+ processor and need some
    advice. What is the difference between the Barton and the Thoroughbred?
    I see the Barton has 512K and Thoroughbred is 256K. The Barton shows
    1.93ghz and other is 2.0 ghz. Both are close in price. I am a novice
    at this and would appreciate any help. thanks, Ray

    That's the difference. And of course all Bartons have a default FSB of
    Well, somethings wrong with this picture, the 2500+ Bartons default speed
    is 1833MHz (11x166) so one at 1930 would be considered a 2600+ (11.5x166).
    Maybe you meant a 2500+ and mistyped.

    These AMD Athlon XP Barton processors have slightly slower clock speeds than
    similar rating Thoroughbred Athlon XP processors because the Barton
    processor gives better performance for clock speed.
