i just asked the same question on anoth thread i thought the bartons were going to be the 333fsb chips starting with the 2700+ guess i was wrong. cause they are listed as t-bread cores on newegg. what is going to be the major change(advantage of the barton cores does anyone have a link so i can check it out?
Barton has a larger data storage feature, known as a cache. Where existing Athlon chips have a 256-kilobyte cache, Barton will store 512 kilobytes of data. The modified version also will have a bus that operates at a frequency of 333 megahertz, up from 266 megahertz.
ILUSION thanks for the links a little old but still thanks.
i'm like you the way AMD has been spitting out chips the last week or two old barton might just hit and serprise everyone! i need a new processor but i hate to buy one (2600+)for my new abit at7 max2, and then turn around and the barton comes out. i fried my 2200+ last week! using my girlfriends 266mhz model t makes me thankfull for anything over 500mhz.
