Na alle verhalen die bekend zijn geworden over de verschillende core's in de Tbirds en Duron's van AMD, heeft Kyle van HardOcp.com een stukje geschreven over de blauwe/paarse cores die uit Fab30 komen (Dresden).
Surely a blind man could see the difference. Please remember that we try to offend everyone, you are not being picked on. Next we will pick on the stoopid, although we will use some high intelligence humor that they will not understand. If you look really close, you can see a difference in the actual die size between the two, but the color is the key. Blue = BETTER = COPPER TRACES. The green cpu is a Duron BTW, not a TBird. The only TBirds I have here are blue, so I could not show you a TBird to TBird shot.
To get on with my story, I got hold of the 750MHz TBird and threw it on an ABIT KT7 that had a 1GHz TBird on it, OCed to 1.1GHz for some tests we were running. To my surprise, the 750MHz TBird booted and ran Win98SE at 1.1GHz with the voltage pushed up to the 1.825 mark. Yes, you heard me correct. The Blue Core 750MHz TBird from PCNut ran an easy 1.1GHz on my ABIT board. I ran Prime95 on it for about two hours with no problem. It would even boot and run Windows at 1150. Would boot at 1200 but would not load Windows all the way.
Het verhaaltje is eigenlijk vooral gericht op Pcnut waar ze deze speeltjes te koop zijn. Maar de "overclockability" interesseerde me eigenlijk meer .
