|The HP Vectra motherboard is capable of
natively supporting, at max, a 200MHz CPU due to the limitations of its
clock multiplier settings. Even if you could find a Pentium-200MMX around
(and you probably won't), it would only increase your performance by, at
most, about 10%. Check our CPU Comparator +
to see the difference.
All is not dismal, however. Companies such as PowerLeap
and Evergreen Technologies
(linked to our Vendors page) do offer CPU
upgrade kits that can bring your system up to the performance of an AMD
K6-III 400 (Check the CPU Comparator +
again--it's about a 250% increase), all without a motherboard upgrade.
Of the three, PowerLeap's solution has been tested with the Vectra, but
Evergreen's may also provide a good fit. Check them out.
