Marc

From new Egg
Supported CPU: Socket A AMD Athlon/Athlon XP/Duron Processors. This is your M/B.

From new Egg
Model: AMD Athlon XP 2400+
Core: Thoroughbred. This is your CPU.

Not supported by M/B. Key word CORE.

M/B supports Athlon/Athlon XP/Duron core.

As Intel and AMD improves function on the existing
CPU, its core, they give it a new model name. Pins may be the same but not the internal working parts.

Did this help or just muddle things up?

Are you holding the M/B in your hand?

and where are you getting "Model 10"?

You are asking me to back up your decision.
Not going to.

I will assist you to find the answers.
But not do the research.

Model 10 is the AMD number for
by Ray Harinec / September 2, 2004 7:22 AM PDT

that series of Barton's. First documented in the Model 8 spec's. I have a copy of the Model 10 Data Sheet.

All of the design type documents are available as PDF downloads from AMD and Intel.

The 2600 Barton Model 8 [333MHz] showed a frequency 0f 2088 MHz where the thoroughbred Model 8 2600+ [same name] was 2133. Now the model 10 Barton [2500+]the Model 10 shows 2133.

Not sure but I think the Model 10 vs Model 8 is a different width artwork. I have the entire PDF on the computer, only printed oiut a couple of key pages. Maximum Model 10 2500+ power consumption is 68.3 Watts, typicsl 53.2.
