Athlon XP-Mobile 2500+ examined at Hexus

An interesting overclocker’s look at the AMD Athlon XP-M Barton 2500+ has been posted by HEXUS.net. "It fits straight into a desktop S462 board without modification (uPGA XP-Ms excepted), is fully unlocked for multiplier selection, defaults to only 1.45v at 1.83GHz, and overclocks prodigiously." For SPCR readers, these comments suggest the processor might also be very undervoltable, making it run even cooler than it already does. HEXUS concludes..

The low-voltage nature of the CPU can also be used to power an ultra-quiet system, should the user be so inclined. The results speak for themselves. High performance doesn’t necessarily have to be limited to the Athlon 64 or top-end Pentium 4 CPUs. What’s more, it can be achieved with a £70 CPU.
