AMD Barton 2500+: the first test results

With the help of our good friend cho from GZeasy ( cho!) it turned out that OC.com.tw, having somehow obtained the sample of Barton-based Athlon XP, supporting 166MHz FSB and 512Kb L2 cache — AMD Barton 2500+, posted its test results. And we are posting excerpts from them below.



First, about the CPU itself. The first photos were introduced on November 25 (see The photo of AMD Barton).

What the marking means — AXDA1833DKT4D. Athlon XP (AXD), A desktop, 1833 MHz (how much is it in QuantiSpeed?), D — OPGA, K 1.65V core voltage, — +90C temeprature limit, 4 512Kb L2 cache, D 333MHz FSB. So, its actually AMD Barton with 512Kb L2 cache and 333MHz FSB. The larger crystal is illustrated on the following photos of Palomino, Thoroughbred B and Barton, and the more detailed Thoroughbred B and Barton:



Where did they get 2500+ from? First, its how WCPUID 3.10 determined, second, its how BIOS determined (166 x 11.0):



Barton Cache Info:


Well, all the interesting discussion of Thoroughbred B and Barton, QuantiSpeed, along with conclusions are too much for the news format. Here are just tables for Thoroughbred B and Barton along with the rating forecasts:
