    I was wondering if there is a HUGE difference between a Thorough Bred 2,600 333FSB and a Barton core 2,600 333FS?

    If so, what arethe aspects that are better or worse, and what are the Pro's and Con's of each?

    Was reading up on it recently and what I got from it was the major difference between the T-breds and Barton cores was that the Barton core almost doubles the L2 cache from 256k to 512k so that it results in becoming a 640K cache.

    There is no Barton 2600, that's a T-Bred.

    The closest Barton is 2500+.

    Hmmm - Ok.

    But if you were to buy a new CPU, and the barton core was more expensive.

    What are the good aspects of the Barton core that make it so much better?

    Does it increase Benchmarks and Game performence substancially is what I mean?

    i would probably say to get a barton 2500 as it is slightly faster because of the extra L2 cache however as you already have a tbred 2600 there probably wouldnt be much point in getting a 2500 or 2600 barton as the 2600 will have a lower clock speed than the thoroughbred you already have

    the 2500+ barton is a good overclocker but like metallicat666 said you might as well stick with what you have. if you really wanted you could go for a 3200+.

    That would not make mutch sense due to it's price, they won't perform that good. Not better than a cheaper chip oc to 3200 speed. :2cents:
