Yes, another old computer/cpu/motherboard question, I know, but I shouldn’t have many more, or maybe even any more, after this one.
On a socket 3 CPU I’m toying around with, I have an AMD 5x86 133mhz p75 chip (33mhz * 4) which should run as fast, or faster, than a Pentium 75mhz (and if I set the bus speed to 40mhz then I’ll have 160mhz (40mhz * 4) which is equivalent to a Pentium 90mhz).
Anyway, when I boot, the boot up screen shows that the CPU is running at 100mhz. I have the motherboard jumpers set up right, so everything should be fine. I’m wondering if my BIOS can handle a 133mhz CPU, but I think it’s current enough. Maybe it’s nothing, and I’m still getting 133mhz performance, even though it’s registering at 100mhz. I tried Wintune 98 and it also said the CPU was 100mhz.
If anybody uses older computers, or remembers the days when they do, if you used a 5x86 chip, or something similar, did you get this problem? What would be a good benchmark program I could try to try and get the true speed that the CPU is running at? (I’m running Windows 98 if that makes a difference.)
Anyway, no big deal, but all help is appreciated, thanks.
