  • AMD K6-III+

    I just scored an AMD K6-III+ off ebay. Apparently there are drivers available that allow the CPU clock speed to vary based on the current CPU load(this is called Powernow!). Just wondering if anyone knows where to get these drivers? I've tried a search on google and altavista and havent found anything. Any help would be great(I think I've seen some other ppl here with K6-II+ or K6-III+ CPUs).

    Best bet IMO is to check AMD's site for them. Though it sounds odd, speed changes on the fly while operating? *shrug*.. Got an AMD K6-II 350 I wanna down clock to 300 to lower operational needs and heat.

        Man if I scored one of those I'd try and overclock an old Pentium laptop! Just think of bumping your old laptop to 400mhz!

            Here is the link to the auction. And I also found the powernow! driver for a Compaq laptop so I'll give that a go.

              I also forgot to mention that I tried to get a K6-II+ a while back. A local supplier had heaps but sold out just before I found out. I was so ****ed so I've been waiting for one to show up on ebay ever since (about 6 months). I personally dont think the CPU was worth any more than $135 but hey I've been bitten by the bug and I just had to have this one.
