Snap. Oh well. Figured that might be the case.

Hi guys and gals!

I searched OCN for a thread / club on this topic and couldn't find any!

Searches for rare / unusual / odd + CPU /Processor returned no results (if you find one, feel free to let me know!), so this might be a good place to start a thread / club for those that have that rare CPU, old or new, being used or cherished in a collection ( or just in a big box full of computer parts) to come out and share those CPU's with the community!

I'm thinking of x86 chips primarily, but I guess any rare / unusual CPU is worthy of being in the club.

As an example of rare CPU's I would consider both those that were produced / bought in very low numbers because of either availability or high purchase price, or even those CPU's that were not bought by many because the next one was better for almost the same price; some CPU's that were mainly OEM and not very famous at it either, or even some engineering samples that were actually named, produced in small numbers and considered for full production.


Examples of rare / unusual CPU's:

- Cyrix 5x86 120Mhz and other Cyrix CPU's;

- Pentium OverDrive 63 / 83 Mhz and other Pentium Overdrives;

- AMD K6-3 450 Mhz and 500 Mhz (even more rare);

- VIA C3 (check slngsht's post);

- Vortex86 SoC;

- Pentium 4 2.8 Ghz, 400 Mhz FSB; Pentium 4 3.4 Ghz Extreme Edition; Pentium 4 3.8 Ghz;

- Core 2 Duo E8190 (same as the E8200 but without Virtualization);

- Core 2 Duo E8300 2.83 Ghz - did anyone here buy one ? Everybody got either the E8200, that came with many pre-built systems, or the legendary E8400;

- Core 2 Duo E8700 3.5 Ghz (ohhhh, some lucky people got their hands on one of these);

- Core 2 Quad Q6400 2.13 Ghz; Core 2 Quad QX6800 2.93 Ghz and QX6850 3 Ghz;


I'm not very familiar with AMD CPU's, but I'm sure there are quite a few rare examples as well. I'm thinking of some Phenom II X3 models and probably many more older ones (EDIT: Just added the K6-3 450 Mhz and 500 Mhz). More examples are welcome.

If you guys think this is a nice idea, post your pics and I'll add you as members! Or if you remember more rare / unusual CPU's you're welcome to share the info!


Here are mine:

21022011732.jpg

From left to right: Pentium Overdrive 83 Mhz, Cyrix 5x86 120 Mhz, Cyrix 5x86 100 Mhz, AMD 5x86 133 Mhz ADZ model (there is also a more common ADW model).


Cheers!



Owners:

- slngsht

- tpi2007

I literally have an entire bag full of P4's at 2.8 with the 400mhz FSB, so does that make me a certified thug?

I'm not sure if their rare but I have a pair of Pentium Pro MMX 200MHz if I remember correctly...

I think I also have some slot A + slot 1 cpus also.

I have a bunch of other unknowns because the heatsinks are stuck to them.

These were all available in 1995, with 133, 150 and 166 Mhz models coming in 1996.

I had a Pentium 75MHz in '95. I remember being super jealous of my uncle, who had a P90...

The Sparc chips are really quite rare in domestic use, but they were found in a lot of high-end workstations, servers and many supercomputers.

I also (briefly) owned an Intel Itanium server - bought it off eBay cos it was cool, but then sold it a few weeks later as I realised I didn't have any purpose for the 60lb beast. They were pretty rare all round because no-one bought them...

If you do remember correctly then they are super rare - to my knowledge Intel never made a Pentium Pro that supported MMX - that was only on the later Pentium MMX and Pentium II chips (if I remember correctly - but the Pro had a few other features that pushed it ahead of the Penitums).

Hi, harishgayatri, welcome to the thread

The C3 was already mentioned, we sort of agree that it's not very rare, but it's unusual, so I added it to the list.

As to the 486DX2, well, I just have one thing to say: you've got a great CPU right there , but unless that signing on the CPU is from a celebrity, it's not rare at all. The 486 DX2 66MHz was the best selling CPU of the early nineties!

Thanks mate.

The Intel Chip isn't signed by a celebrity. It was signed by my Dad's office system providers.

Depends on several factors.
If it's LGA775, then it's a waste of a good mobo socket. If it's PGA478 - it's one of the top 3 CPUs.
Then comes the question which one of the three it is.
