PowerLeap PL-AXP: an Athlon XP/MP into an older machine
PowerLeap, known as a maker of CPU adapters, introduced its new solution, PL-AXP, an adapter for AMD Athlon/Duron enabling to install the latest AMD Athlon XP/MP processors into older machines.
- Includes multiplier unlocking technology that lets you freely adjust multipliers from 5X ~ 24X for many* Athlon XP/MP CPUs--without reconnecting bridges on the top of the CPU or shorting socket contacts on your mainboard.
- Supports Socket A (462-pin) AMD CPUs, including Athlon and Duron series
- Dimensions: 49.6 x 49.6 x 2.0 (mm)
The only thing a user has to do is to choose the right processor for a new system. According to the source, "Only Barton and Thoroughbred-B core-based Athlon XP/MP CPUs are qualified for multiplier unlocking--the PL-AXP does not support unlocking for the Palomino and Thoroughbred-A core-based Athlon CPUs. Locate the label on the Athlon XP/MP CPU and make sure the model number starts with AXDA*******, or the CPU might not be qualified for unlocking.
In addition, AMD has officially locked all Athlon CPU internal multipliers produced since Week 34, 2003, and the PL-AXP can´t unlock these CPUs. In order to unlock CPU multipliers with the PL-AXP, you need to use an Athlon CPU that was manufactured before Week 34, 2003 (identified as 0334).
The manufacturing date is printed on the Athlon CPU label (please refer to the photo below for location of the manufacturing date)."
