anyone know what the processor speed is on an Intel 486DX2?
The AMD 486DX2 is 66 Mhz
bummer, thats slow. the processor says intel at the top not amd tho.
Both AMD and intel made 486DX2 chips and both were 66 mhz chips. the 486DX5 were 133 mhz
I'm not 100% sure but I believe there was also a 50MHz 486DX2 processor, then 75 and 100MHz ones were DX4 models.
Wow... it's been a really long time since I heard those names!
You're are right. Both 486DX and 486DX2-50 are 50MHz cpu chips, 486DX2-66 is 66 MHz and 486DX4-100 is 100MHz.
cool, thanks for the help. i got the pc for free from a hospital and it couldnt figure it out. thanks again.
A DX2 means it was designed to use the 2x multiplier... not that had to be run at that.
Intel released 3, a DX2-50 and a DX2-66, and a DX2-80
AMD did likewise, Cyrix also did such, as did ST and IBM.
For both DX and SX, intel released 25 and 33mhz chips. There is no non-multiplied 50mhz chip.
