Dear CPU Scorekeeper

I want to upgrade from my Intel Pentium 60 MHz processor to a faster processor.

What is available?

- - Dave, December 1999

See the questionCPU Scorekeeper Responds

The Pentium-60MHz processor was the first CPU that Intel ever made under the Pentium name. As it was built to fit the long-obsolete 273-pin Socket-4 connector, it is not even amenable to the latest upgrade kits made by by PowerLeap, Evergreen Technologies, or Kingston Technology (linked to our Vendors page); they require at least a later-generation Socket-5 or -7 compatible motherboard to start with. For more information on the upgrade issues involved, see Chris Hare's excellent resource on the subject.

It's time to start looking for a whole new computer. Not only will you be able to better run Windows, Linux, or whatever OS you choose, but you will be able to take advantage of new hardware, such as DVD, CD-RW, and USB peripherals.

Check out our Top CPU Scorecard list and our Price List pages to help you decide how fast a machine your budget will buy.

Happy hunting...
