Slot 1 Processor/CPU that Intel sold? The reason that I ask is that I
have a Tyan S1834 Tiger 133 Dual Processor Slot 1 motherboard. I
currently have 2 X P3 933MHz CPU's in my current configuration and
would like to get the fastest P3 Slot 1 processor. I know that the
P3's went up to 1.3 GHz clock speed but I have never seen one this
speed in the Slot 1 form factor. With this in mind, does anyone know
what is the fastest clock speed Slot 1 that was produced and sold by
Also, is the P3 Xeon Slot (I am not sure which Slot it is) form factor
CPU the same as Slot 1? I am specifically referring to the P3 Xeon
that is the Slot form factor and NOT the flat chip form factor. Thus,
will the P3 Xeon CPU/Processor fit in my Slot 1 motherboard?
Re: What is the Fastest MHz/GHz Clock Speed For the Intel P3 Slot 1 Processor/CPU?
1.13GHz, but some of them were *defective* at that speed,
more commonly it was around 1.1GHz (what the core was
capable of, unless you raised the voltage. "IF" you had a
good specimen of CPU and raised the voltage, 1.2-1.35GHz was
obtainable, in fact for quite a while I held onto a Celeron
600MHz as a gem because it o'c to 1.2GHz.
Your board's chipset is 694X, not 694T. Therefore, it
supports coppermine P3 but not Tualatin. Therefore, the
1.3GHz P3 is not supported. You "might" be able to get a
Tualatin P3 to work with a socket adapter, but nothing like
this existed for the slot 1 processors, you'd need more
hands-on hardcore contact-covering and soldering to make it
I think you are a little too concerned today, about
"fastest" for such an old platform, as anything made today
(except for lowest end junk) will be quite a bit faster (in
single CPU configurations too), than a dual 1GHz platform.
That's not to slight the 694X chipset, it was a nice chipset
to use as it supported AGP4X, higher density memory, and
typically ATA100, while other PC133 alternatives like i815
were castrated to only support 512MB of memory.
