  1. With the new Athlon XP CPU's coming out i was wondering if my motherboard can support the new processors. I have an ECS K7VTA3 V3.x. With the 2800+ using a 333mhz FSB(and in the future the the Clawhammer) i want to know if my motherboard can support it. I've looked all over and can't find it anywhere. Either I've missed it or it just isn't out there.:confused:

    And no current Athlon board will support any Hammer CPU, hammer will have a greater pin count than the Athlon's 468.

    I agree, in general I have always doubled my processing power when I have upgraded.

    I agree too, however, I might have to wait awhile for a 3.2 gig AMD cpu :(
