Trying to find out if the current AMD Durons Sok A either 1.6GHz or 1.8GHz CPUs are the Model 8 Applebreed models. Erh looked at AMD but not found my answer.

I am trying to find out if its compatible with the Asus A7V8X-MX or A7V8X-MX SE Motherbaords.

Hi Yettie. I don't know about the Duron model names, but I've just upgraded my computer with this 1.6G Duron click here, this ASUS A7V8X-X click here, and this very quiet processor heatsink click here, and I'm very happy with the result.

I think you will find that both duron's are cut down versions of the 1900+ and the 2200+.

I do know on certain bios's that a duron 1600 registers as a unknown 1900+. Some are chips that did not pass the L2 cache test, at first, and now they are re badging the 1900+ and 2200+ as durons ( to sell quickly) as they move to the 64 bit cpu.

I just had a quick look at the spec for the Model 7 click here, and the Model 8 click here, and it looks like the main difference is that the Model 7 has a 200M FSB, and the Model 8 has a 266M FSB. If that's the case, then mine from Ebuyer with a part number ADUDHD1600DLV1C is definitely a Model 8.

I give in!

Yep! Will agree with Gongoozler.

Have recently installed the same chip in a MSI board and it is 266Mhz Model 8.

Runs as sweet as a nut.
