How can you “burn out at work”

Having dealt with processor cooling issues, we can now easily figure out the question of why Duron processors burn up if they are turned on without a heatsink.

Generally speaking, the question is somewhat strange. For a long time, everyone has been searching for effective radiators, and some still have the idea to try – or maybe the processor will work without a radiator? 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).
