Still going strong after 10 years! 03/29/2014
This review is from: AMD Athlon 64 2800+ ClawHammer Single-Core 1.8 GHz Socket 754 ADA2800BOX Processor
I've had this processor in an old computer for 10 years (2004) now and it's still running well. Never had any problems along the way, either!
I loaded Windows 7 and Linux Mint 16. Windows 7 SP1 ran okay but you can definitely see some trouble with performance and Mint 16 was next to unusable.
Back in 2010, I loaded Ubuntu 9.04 and it ran well.
So, while this chip is showing its age, it aged well. I'm currently running XP on it and don't have a use for it at this juncture, but it may come in handy in the future.
Running it with:
MSI K8T NEO-FSR (no bad caps)
1 GB Kingston ValueRAM
ATI Radeon 9000
2 Maxtor 40 GB IDE HDDs
300W Starlogic PSU
Everything still runs like new! Currently running an AMD FX-8350 chip in my current PC. Looking forward to another 10 years, AMD!
