Dear CPU Scorekeeper

What CPU upgrade would you recommend for a HP 6340?
- - B.B., June 1999

See the questionCPU Scorekeeper Responds

The HP 6340 shipped with a Celeron 300MHz processor, Intel's first attempt at a budget-priced Pentium II class chip. However, as you can see from our Celeron stats page (and like that of our friend with the HP 8250), this Celeron was stripped of an on-board cache. As you can see from its CPU score, this severely crippled its performance.

Your CPU upgrade options will largely depend upon how configurable are the voltage and bus speed options on your HP motherboard. I would recommend staying in the Celeron line and upgrading to the Slot-1 version of the Celeron 433. It should be almost twice the speed of your current CPU.

For warranty coverage, I would again consult your local HP dealer to install your CPU upgrade.
