What is a model number?
Before comparing with competing processors, let's look at the performance of Athlon XP processors with different CPUIDs. The model number is simply the number of a specific model in the…

We overcome the limitations
Standards for SCS based on twisted pairs for Ethernet 10Base-T and Fast Ethernet 100Base-TX networks stipulate that: the maximum length of horizontal wiring is 90 m; the total length of…

I love the heat at the beginning of the year!

Finally, winter has come. The time has come when it is necessary to seriously think about cooling computers. In magazines, the topic of computer cooling is raised, as a rule, every spring. The logic is simple: users get hot, and they begin to think primarily not about themselves, but about their best friend. But in fact, the need for cooling the computer is weakly dependent on the time of year. Continue reading

The oldest Athlon

No matter how unique a processor may be, there will always be tasks for which its performance will not be enough. Most often these are tasks of three-dimensional modeling (for example, 3D Max). As a rule, you can only improve your life a little in this situation by installing at least two processors in one machine. Therefore, a processor that cannot be installed in a multiprocessor configuration cannot be positioned as a processor for powerful workstations, not to mention servers. Continue reading

What is Athlon XP?

Athlon XP processors are truly a whole family of processors. This family now includes five models with slightly different cores.

The very first processor of the Athlon XP family is made using 0.18 micron technology; its feature is the QuantiSpeed ​​architecture. We will not go into the subtleties of this architecture now. The change in architecture allowed us to significantly increase the performance of processors (compared with previously released processors on the Thunderbird core, which raised a real storm in the processor market).

"Think for yourself, decide for yourself ..."
Until now, we have considered solutions that save money when organizing the LAN of a small office due to some compromises with standards. There is another way of organizing the…

Intel forecasts (optimistic)
To solve the problem of reducing the size of transistors and conductive tracks, Intel created a whole working group called Technology & Manufacturing Group (TMG), which has about 4,000 employees.…

Cold shower for a hot friend
So, we have established that the task of cooling the processor should be solved regardless of how the other elements are cooled. And the ways to solve it have long…
