Dear CPU Scorekeeper

I saw on your site where you state that the K6-2+ is not for desktops.

Well, I beg to differ. Go here and you will see that it will run on Super 7 motherboards and that vegapc.com is selling them for that purpose.

I just purchased one yesterday.

Thank you for pointing us to Tom's Hardware review and your most correct observation concerning AMD's K6-2+. You will, of course, find Super-7 motherboards in desktops as well as notebooks. Thus, as our CPU Featurator shows, the K6-2+ can be safely used in both, provided the desktop motherboard can support its lower voltage requirements.

Note, however, that the K6-2+ was produced with a definite focus toward the notebook market. It incorporates PowerNow! and other benefits for notebooks that you would not typically appreciate in a desktop system. But as our CPU Scorecard indicates, a K6-2+ would certainly be a viable desktop upgrade for anyone running slower-clocked versions of AMD's K6-2 or K6-III processors.
