Dear CPU Scorekeeper

I own a Sony PC/Tower PCV200 model....and it has the Intel 200MMX CPU!!

I don't know if I can upgrade it to a faster CPU and if I can, what is the fastest CPU I can purchase without getting a new motherboard??

- - Joc, June 2000

See the questionCPU Scorekeeper Responds

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.
