MP Chip?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just noticed that my new chip which is an AMD XP 2100 during boot indicates that its a MP chip. Does it matter? Its the same mz as the XP 2100 chip... (1.733mz). Is it the same thing? Just curious since I though it would say XP during bootup.Thanks,Bill

HiThe architecture is modified to allow more efficient multi-processor operation but that shouldn't affect your performance used singly. Although AMD don't condone it, I believe the XP regular can be used in a dual-processor setup also but it wouldn't have the same performance.Of course FS2k2 won't care if you 1 processor or 8. Not many applications do unless you're into high-end graphics such as Lightwave which multi-thread, or if you ran FS on one processor and other applications on another. In that case, you'd obviously be far too busy to enjoy flying anyway so why bother? :)Best regards//Neil
