Your right I didn't remember correctly...

I just looked in my box of procs and there isn't a MMX marking...o well

Dont know If I'm having a unusual/rare CPu, but after looking in my closet with the "PC crap" as my fiance is calling it, the only candidate I could have is a AMD K6-2/475AHX smile.gif ..

If it is, I'd be happy to join you club tongue.gif

I guess it does, not many people have those! Will add you to the list!

How's the performance ? What would you compare it to on the Intel / AMD side ?

How did you get hold of so many ? I read a long time ago that Intel only made those because a large corporation specifically asked for them, to upgrade systems. They were never sold at retail.

Post pics with your nickname on a piece of paper next to it/them so I can add you!

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.

I was already searching for such a rarity wink.gif I even considered the possibility you having one of those Pentium II Overdrive that fit in the Pentium Pro socket wink.gif

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).

Tell me about it, I was jealous of everybody LOL, as I only had a 486SX2 66Mhz biggrin.gif. I upgraded to a 486DX4 the next year.

Thanks for the info, so we can accept Sparc as being unusual in the consumer space. Only thing missing now is pics from the owner.

A 60lb Itanium server eek.gif shipping costs mustn't have been pretty.

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.
Northwood/Prescott - nothing out of the ordinary, move along rolleyes.gif
Gallatin - you have my respect, kind sir thumb.gif

LightspeedIII: This.

If you want, you're welcome to join the P4 club (see our sigs).

Ohhhh the iconic MOS! I've spent countless hours with a BBC micro which had one of those biggrin.gif

I took this paragraph from the Wikipedia article:
Quote:
The 6502 was introduced at US$25 at the Wescon show in September 1975. The company had an off-floor suite with a big jar full of the chips. However with this early run they only had a handful of working ones. To give the appearance of larger quantities, the bottom of the jar was stuffed with defective chips, and only the ones at the top of the jar worked.[3] At the same show the 6800 and Intel 8080 were selling for US$179.[4] At first many people thought the new chip's price was a hoax or a mistake, but while the show was still ongoing both Motorola and Intel had dropped their chips to US$69.[5][6] These price reductions legitimized the 6502, which started selling by the hundreds.[3]

Just goes to show that a little competition is always VERY good for the consumer.


I doubt the MOS can be considered rare or unusual given that it was inside many computers and game consoles of the time, but it's nonetheless a great find!

As to the AMD K6-III 450 Mhz, post pics with your nickname next to it so I can add you!

Cheers!

p4's at 2.8 400mhz. are very rare.Usually it's a celeron when they(400mhz.fsb) are clocked that high.They actually carry some value,for people limited too 400mhz. fsb.A few years ago they were worth around 25.00 a piece.

I once had a pentium 3 at 800mhz core speed in an old acer travlemate 212T. Oldest CPU i have in the house is a single core 1.6ghz celeron single core. I once also had a P4 3.8Ghz HT. Not rare or unusual but it was an uncommon CPU at the time.

The Tualatins would technically fit in all socket 370 boards, but had different electrical pinouts than the overwhelmingly majority of socket 370 boards which ran Mendocino Celerons and Coppermine Pentium 3's and Celerons, and were therefore, incompatible with most boards. Because of this incompatibility, the Tualatins were mainly used in dual-socket server boards since Pentium 4's were single threaded and didn't support SMP like the Pentium 3's did, so they were better suited for server scenarios than the Pentium 4's.

Here's a bit of interesting trivia: an overclocked Pentium 3 at 1.8ghz would outpace a stock Pentium 4 Willamette at the same speed in most benchmarks. However, the DDR ram that the Pentium 4 ran on would help even the playing field in some situations.
I would say it's fairly uncommon/rare for the reasons you listed.

Also, the 1.4GHz model outpaced the 1.7GHz Pentium 4 model in benchmarks. That's at least part of why that electrical incompatibility exists. Intel wanted to discourage people from buying it when it was faster than the Pentium 4, as they wanted to push/market the latter.

I'm not sure of the mobile variant (if that's what that one had), but the desktop variant was ridiculously common (I have one). 800MHz was sort of to the Pentium III what the 2.8GHz variant was to the Pentium 4.

i have some old intel celerons that use a Slot 1 or slot 2 socket. I dont know if they are unusual or not though.
