    bought a barton but whm server info says athlon

    i supposedly have a bartoon 3000 but i only just looked at the whm server info and it says

    Processor #1 Vendor: AuthenticAMD
    Processor #1 Name: AMD Athlon(tm) Prosussor
    Processor #1 speed: 2157.991 MHz
    Processor #1 cache size: 512 KB
    now the cache and ram are fine jsut the athlon bit, would it read as an athlon?

    recently setup a amd sempron 2800 the bios reported a 2800 however the operating system was reporting a 1ghz, turned out the dip switches on the motherboard were not set correctly.

    Barton means having an open core AMD. There is no cooling shield around it. Thats all. The specs are exactly the same exept for the tempratures.

    Actually, it means the CPU has 512Kb of L2 cache.

    And if you're lucky, a 400MHz FSB.
