Daiki has informed me of some very interesting developments over in Japan. It seems that the folks over at Bunny's Workshop have managed to overclock the Athlon 600 to 650 MHz without the aid of any special hardware! It appears that by modifiying a few of the pins on the Athlon, it is possible to change the multiplier settings.

This page (Overclock Technique - AMD Athlon) outlines the steps necessary to overclock the Athlon and includes pictures, though it is in Japanese. However, we will keep you posted on further developments regarding this discovery!
Vraag ik mij af waarom het toch altijd weer de Japanners zijn die dit soort dingen uitvinden?
