I have a super socket 7 mobo made by Iwill. It's an XA100 plus board. I've just found out it can accept a CPU as fast as a K6-3 475mhz! I intend to test this board with an Intel MMX 233 CPU, but wanted to check out some of the AMD alternatives, just for a bit of fun. I looked on ebay for AMD K6 CPUs, but only found K6-2 CPUs. No K6-3s. Granted, there were a very small handful of international sellers [I'm in the UK], but the vast majority of K6s for sale were K6-2s. Why is that - did they not sell well?
Incidentally, I initially thought the IWill SS7 mobo could only handle K6-2 CPUs. I bought a cheap K6-2 400 & K6-2 500 CPU, and they've just arrived. Time to try 'em out! 😀
