    AGOIA is a stepping on AMD Athlon cpus. It is a good stepping from what I hear.

    consider a stepping to be a serial number givin to a certain cpu, for athlon xp's the best steppings are agoia, aroia, agoga ect... the athlon xp cpus with the agoia stepping overclock better then the other steppings, understand now?

    Most (maybe all) of them come from Malaysia. I think there was another country, but I'm not sure because I can't remember the name.

    Last I checked AMD was an american company based in Sunnyvale, CA. Perhaps you were thinking ATI, which is a Canadian company.

    Err, I'll try to go in more detail. Stepping is a revision. As the chip progresses, steppings develop, or in this case you can say they make better revisions and AGOIA and AROIA are the final steppings of the AMD XP series, that's why they have such a better overclock than the AGKGA for example, or any others.

    AGOIA is a very good stepping CPU in the AthlonXP family of CPUs.

    Since the AGOIA, AMD has produced an even newer stepping called AROIA which runs in the speediest XP2100~2200 CPUs.

    You pickup as you go along, you may have learned something new in an instance, and it'll keep going.

    The stepping doesnt mean anything, its just a code assigned to identify one batch of CPU's.
