    Prá quem tinha curiosidade de ver o que seria um AXP com um bus de 333Mhz, esta review está bem boa...

    http://www.xbitlabs.com/cpu/athlonxp-166/

    Realmente o CPU precissava de um upgrade no seu bus, para que o Raptor volta-se outra vez para ele... :P

    Mas cá vai:
    First of all, you should bear in mind the fact that AMD is already looking forward to the upcoming launching of the ClawHammer processor family in the end of the year, and Athlon XP is of no priority any longer for the company. Moreover, the announcement of the ClawHammer baby positioned as a performance solution will oust Athlon XP to the value market now occupied by Duron and Celeron CPUs. Therefore, AMD started "holding back" Athlon XP family, so that to push it smoothly and painlessly to a new position. Besides, a very aggressive advertising and promotion campaign will definitely accompany ClawHammer launching, thus the more advantages ClawHammer will be able to present over Athlon XP, the better. So, AMD will do its best to make the ClawHammer bus bandwidth much higher than that of the Athlon XP CPU. This was the marketing reason.

    Pois, mas para passar 6 meses até o Hammer vai custar um pouco... :rolleyes: :(

    Also, a shift to 333MHz bus (or 166MHz FSB frequency) will lead to some engineering problems. Although Athlon XP processors are already capable of working with faster bus, we wouldn't say the same about mainboards. The increase in the FSB frequency will lead to greater EMI, which in its turn will cause overall system instability. That is why the implementation of faster 333MHz bus will require some extra tests to be carried out, and maybe even a complete layout redesign. Far not all the mainboard makers are ready for extra expenses. That is why no wonder that only a half of all Socket A mainboards available in the today's market can work well with 166MHz FSB.

    Pois nisso têm razão mas...

    However, we would like to remind you that EV6 processor bus used in Athlon systems was initially designed to be able to work at up to 400MHz. so theoretically, no one can prevent AMD from speeding up the Athlon CPU bus another time, up to 333MHz, for instance. In this case, the systems based on processors with faster bus will boast a significant performance increase as more data will be transferred between the processor and the memory.

    Pois, dava até 400Mhz... porque é que não o fez?

    Mesmo assim, quem não se importar pode sempre hackar o multiplicador e subir o bus... :D

    realmente através destes testes é k se vê como nem sempre vale a pena gastar rios de dinheiro ... :-D mas com o bus a 166 mhz e embora eles refiram k seja algo instavel (pelo menos foi o k eu percebi) compensa investir numa board com um chipset a 333 pk o proprio sistema tem um rendimento e uma performance maiores ... raptor vá , vai lá buscar um xp 2100+ e uma board com ddr 2700 para dares ratada a esses "moços" k por ai andam armados ao cucos eheheh :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D
