Would like to hear your thoughts on the Joshua. From what I hear its going to be quite a interesting chip...
64Kb L1 cache
256Kb L2 cache
66/100/133Mhz FSB support
Enhanced dual pipelined MMX and FPU
Will not support SMP
Will not be "clocked locked"
Will work on current Celeron 370 boards or with slotkit adapters for slot 1 motherboards
Who wants to help me overclock this thing?

No SMP???? [img]/forum/frown.gif[/img] [img]/forum/frown.gif[/img] [img]/forum/frown.gif[/img]
No clock locking [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img] [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img] [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]
Looks pretty cool
Got anymore info on it?
And I want one of those too... Right after I build my Athlon server..

For Joshua info tjek this out: http://www.cpureview.com/art_joshua_a.html
"Tjek" is the danish word for "check". Sounds kinda like doesn“t it?
Hell YA! If only someone makes the slotkit I designed, then this thing will overclock a ton!
On paper, it sounds like its gonna be quite a nice chip for the low end market. I'm weary about anything cyrix, but since they were bought by VIA I have some hope. Have to remember, everything sounds better on paper than it actually is (example: k6-2 when it first came out, said to be way faster than the p2's, but in reality (and without 3dnow!) its not).
CBIT had a benchmark and it performed worse than a k6-2
Yeah I saw those benchmarks - what a letdown - I guess that's why they decided to maintain the Cyrix name....
Actually those benchmarks were betas and if you recall the K7 put up poor beta benchmarks.The MIII as it will be called does have potential.Though from what I've read though these chips have a celing of 600mhz.But you be able buy a 600mhx Cyrix for $80 that will run better than a Celeron thanks to the bigger full speed cache.
I hate to say it but I told you so. For $80 I could get a AMD K62-500 and I am sure it is better. Soon I may have a 533 and O/C it.
You could get an AMD K62-533 for $67! www.pricewatch.com
I betI could get it to 600

Cmonster- ya gonna oc your grandkid and turn him into an incredible athlete or something (it doesn't matter what you do as long as you're the best at it.....)
A K62????Are you kidding.I have used several systems with K62 and while they were ok as far as last years technology goes I don't think they make the grade.Lets face it socket 7 has had it unless you're into nostalgia.An Athalon that's diffrent but K62 get a grip that's turned out to be the Cyrix MII of 2000 not the ViaCyrix MIII.Last years tech at discount prices give it up.And how will a 100mhz FSb compare to 133,an onboard cache to 256k on die cache or shrinking support for an outdated product to the new cpu on the block.I like antiques but the kind I like are made of Ceramic not silicone.
