  1. Hi;

    I have AMD Athlon XP 2100+, 1.73GHz..............it suppose to run at 2100, but it only runs at 1700.........thats what my friend told me...........

    How can I check the speed of my proccessor?

    If it runs slow, then how can I overclock it so it will give me the performance I need...............

    Thank You.

    2100+ is the performance rating

    that is, its performance compared to an athlon of the older, thunderbird core. 1.73Ghz is the correct speed of the 2100+, which i believe is 133FSB*13x multiplier

    yep i thought the same thing,,but the AMD's "grade" thare CPU like a P4 would run. Nice angle,,i think.
    Also i got an OEM XP2800+ (Barton) @2.08Ghz for 119 bucks,,money well spent i think
