As shown on our Pentium-MMX
stats page, the fastest Intel processor you could upgrade to would
only run at 233MHz. With your motherboard's 66MHz bus speed, the fastest Socket-7
compatible processor would be AMD's K6-2
at 366MHz. However, both chips will be difficult to find these days.
To stay with your current motherboard, your best bet would be to
consider one of the several processor upgrade kits available from Evergreen
or Kingston Technologies (K6-2
400MHz), or PowerLeap (K6-III
400MHz), listed on our Vendor page. These
kits come with the necessary voltage & clockspeed converters to allow
the newer processor to work in nearly every Socket-7
motherboard. Check their compatibility lists, however, to ensure they will
work with yours.
As our CPU Comparator shows, boosting
your system to a K6-III 400 could
provide up to 3 times more speed for your computing pleasure.
