What's the difference?

post #1 of 2

Alright, I know that these are both old chips, but what's the difference between the Athlon XP and the Athlon MP?

The MPs are designed for running in server boards where they can place more than one chip on a board. The MP stands for multiple processor. Unless you're planning to get a mobo with multiple sockets and multiple chips to go with that mobo, you won't really need the MP. Think of the MPs as the old skool Opterons.
