Check it out. These are 2.0V and 128K cache vs. 256K for the III+, other than that they work the same. Get them while you can. The K6-III+ are selling for over $100 each now, if you can find them at all.
Just spoke with the owner of Software & Stuff. He has only about a 7 day supply of the K6-II+ left at the rate he is selling them. He does not expect to be able to get more after these are gone. If you have been sitting onthe fence about this you better hop off or lose your chance at these. This is what happened to the K6-III+. If you can find these at all now they are over $100.
In order to go over 200 Mhz you need to do some work on the board. It depends on what model you have how much work you need to do. The hack is exactly the same as for the K6-III+. See the tech ref section for details. You will smoke the power supply without provisions to keep Q16 cool and the crow-bar protection will take out the power supply if that is not bypassed.
I was looking at the TigerDirect K6-II chip also. It's a Plus, not a +. So I checked the AMD website. The Plus chip (TigerDirect) is the older .25 micron technology and doesn't have the onboard L2 - 128K cache (TigerDirect website wrong?).
Well, they have the k6-2 450, then they have the k6-2 450 plus. I ordered it by phone, and the guy distinctly said "the one with the 128k l2 cache, right?" Though he was probably just going by what his computer said...
Keeping my fingers crossed!
For all you folks that ordered from TigerDirect, could one of you tell me what the exact part number is of the processor that you received. The sales person I spoke to on the phone couldn't give me that information. Their website doesn't say anything about the chip supporting Powernow functionality which is required for K6CLK.
I just scored on one of those asus T2P4's about 2 weeks ago. It was tossed still in a case with a Pentium 100 on it. Everything else was stripped.
It's a Ver. 3.10 and I've got a K6-2+ 500 setting here that I WAS going to use for my other i-Opener but... http://www.jump.net/~lcs/kalle/rev3.htm Looks better.
