I've ended up with 3 cpus over the period of the last 3 months. They are as follows:

XP1700+
AXDA1799DLT3C 9591037281402
JIUHB 0319WPMW

xp2600+
AXDA2600DKV3D 9486985250401
AIUHB 0246XPDW

XP2500+ BARTON
AXDA2500DKV4D Y838288270266
AQXDA 0318RPDW

See sig below for details of other hardware used.

Anyway, I decided I would try to OC them as high as I could with my air cooling and see their relative merit based upon a single mobo, memory etc. You need to be carefull because these are only a single cpu tested for each so the results aren't statistical.

I might be able to get a few more 10's of Mhz out of each of them but these are the resulting overclocks.
The 1700+ reached 2461Mhz.
The 2500+ reached 2310Mhz.
The 2600+ reached 2332Mhz.

The results are reasonable close but the raw speed of the 1700 does place it first in the Prime95 benchmark and 3DMark2001 results I've not shown. Given the variablity that one can find from one chip to another, I would say there isn't a clear winner in absolute performance and depends on the luck of the draw when any of these 3 chips are concerned. For example, you get a 2500 that will run 2.5Ghz then it'll win!

In bang/buck, the 1700DLT3C is perhaps nearer to being a winner today. But as the prices on the other two chips continue to drop while 1700DLT3C suppliers charge an arm and a leg for the DLT3C, it isn't clear how long this conclusion will be valid.

Anyway, thought the results were interesting but certainly not earth shaking!

Be :cool:

I would think the barton would win, its got the cache, and it is up near the others in mhz.

No, it doesn't. Doesn't really show much separation from the other 2 at all.

One can always worry if the two tests I used show the L2 capability. The larger cache might come into play with other more real world tests but we (the community of OC) don't really seem to have a good handle on better tests.

I would wait and see what the Bartonized 2600+ can do when it is released.

What I've seen written about the Barton is that it is pretty much a max'ed out chip, i.e they're selecting chips based on their clocking speed and thus you don't see a significant range in OCing. Why should the 2600+ Barton be any different?
