    The first Athlon cores, mostly Thunderbirds, also produced a lot of heat, so it was not only Intel's problem. ;)

    Ohh.... found some pics of AMD's new Socket M2:

    Motorola MC 68000. SPEED, 7.14 mHz + 1MB RAM =Amiga 500
    P1 100MHz
    a few other P1s, P2s, AMD and Cyrix chips all between 486 and 166 (I like the Cyrix)
    P3 866
    P4 1.6
    P4 2.8
    p4 3.2
    eeeek where's all the AMD chips gone?
    Next chip will be AMD, I got the last Dumbtel chip for free as I wouldn't buy one again as they are way too hot and poor value for money!
    I couldn't get hold of AMD64 a year and a half ago where I live so I ended up with 2.8GHz P4 which was crap really and 3.2GHz isn't much better!

    Well this photo looks crap after being shrunk from huge to 640x480 but it's all these chips diserve http://www.myfoto.com.au/Photo/anthraxpants/Computer_Gear/Dumbtel_Chips.jpg

    can you see it?
    I'm going to set up a server with one of the old chips soon, I have all the parts including 64MB EDO RAM (this stuff is hard to come buy in 32MB sticks round here) just got to wack it all together again. I might use the Cyrix if I find it :)

    My wife said "yeah it's nice, what's it about again?" when she looked at the post. lol

    I liked them. that was a great Dual CPU combo back then.

    Of course I could build a quad dual core opty setup now with that kinda money... but still, it was actually a top notch product for people who needed a crunching solution other than dual USIIs or dual EV5s.

    heh I have a dead Slot-a cpu hanging on my wall at work, but I broke it out of the plastic case so it is just a bare board.

    Intel P3 Katmai 450mhz 512kb L2 cache- our first PC, family one

    AMD Duron 600mhz - my girl gave me her old PC

    Athlon XP 2200+ - got it off a mate along with a 9600 pro (the birth of my gaming rig)

    Athlon XP 3200+ - upgraded CPU

    Athlon 64 3500+ Venice - current one. Bought it over intel because it's a beast of an overclocker, and at £150 or so, a good deal. Better than anything intel had to offer.

    I chose AMD because of price/performance. I didn't choose our first Intel system. However back then I think they were better, didn't think much of K-6's. :p

    Man, I used to have one of those baby's!! Bloody great CPU! (and about half the price of the equivalent pentium!)

    I LOVE these kinds of threads!!!! If we're listing all our owned CPU's since we started out, my list isn't the biggest, but it's CERTAINLY not a short one either :D

    1. Intel 486DX2 66mhz
    2. Intel 486DX4 100mhz (Doom at it's finest!)
    3. Intel Pentium 90mhz (my first and last Pentium to have any enthusiasm for)
    4. Cyrix 6x86 PR150 120mhz with 512k L2 COASt module on the mobo
    5. Cyrix 6x86L PR200 150mhz (GLQuake and NIN soundtrack, Mmmmmmm good times)
    6. Cyrix 6x86MX PR200 183mhz
    7. AMD K6 233mhz
    8. AMD K6-2 300mhz - Quake 2, 3Dnow!, and SLI Voodoo2's made this my first REAL gaming rig
    9. AMD K6-2 400mhz (CXT core) - OC'd to 450mhz
    10. AMD K6-3 450mhz - OC'd to 500mhz
    11. Intel Pentium 3 550mhz (this one given to me, I hated Intel by this point)
    12. AMD Athlon 500mhz (GFD-Outsideloop Afterburner OC'd to 700mhz)
    13. AMD Athlon 700mhz (same as above but to 900mhz)
    14. AMD Athlon 900mhz T-bird - OC to 1.1Ghz
    15. AMD Athlon 1200mhz T-bird AXIA - OC to 1.4Ghz
    16. AMD AthlonMP 1000mhz Palamino (single CPU to boot my new Tyan Thunder board)
    17. AMD AthlonMP 1200mhz Palamino (2 CPUs, first taste of SMP glory)
    18. AMD AthlonXP 1800+ Tbred - OC to 1.66Ghz (lame, but best i could get out of it)
    19. AMD AthlonMP 1800+ (2 CPUs) - Upgrade to the MP rig with the 2x1200's
    20. AMD AthlonXP 2400+ Tbred B - OC'd to 2.2Ghz
    21. AMD AthlonXP-M 2200+ (HP Pavilion notebook)
    22. AMD Athlon64 3200+ Clawhammer - OC'd to 2.2Ghz (in spare rig)
    23. AMD Athlon64 3400+ Clawhammer - OC'd to 2.4Ghz (daughter's CPU now)
    24. AMD Athlon64 3400+ Clawhammer - never OC'd, in wife's rig, she'd kill me :p
    25. AMD Athlon64 X2 4400+ Toledo - OC'd to 2.62Ghz and currently powering my dream machine :D

    All CPU's from the pair of Athlon MP 1800+'s are still up and running on my home LAN. I've overclocked almost every AMD CPU I've gotten my grubby mits on, not a HUGE amount ever, but enough to satisfy the need for more power for a little longer till that next gen CPU came out. Since the Athlons came out, I've only missed a few core revisions, most notably K75 (2/5,1/3 L2 cache divider), Barton(sad I missed this gem), Newcastle, Venice(another gem I missed), Manchester and San Diego. Never owned anything with the names Duron, Sempron, or Celeron, never will. Nothing short of AMD becoming the new Intel in policy and industry treatment would drive me away from them in the foreseable future.

    Edit: Blame my dad for the length of my list. He's the bastard that bought me that 486DX4 100mhz and it came bundled with a new motherboard bearing some crazy small slots called PCI and he handed me a screw driver, a baggy of screws, standoffs, and other doo-dads, and said "Have fun." and left me to look bewilderedly at the maze of innards of my whitebox, 486DX2 66mhz, Doom gaming rig and wonder how the hell I was supposed to get the old motherboard out and the new one in and hope it all worked. Plus that crazy ass 2mb Triton PCI card was SLICK and fast as hell over the VLB based Hercules 512k card. Doom was given a completely new level of performance and I was hooked... As I said, that bastard ;)
