CPU Family Tree
« on: December 21, 2011, 02:54:59 pm »
Over Xmas, I have decided to post a compendium of the past and present. Ok, in terms of the A+ sylibus, this not relevent, but I think it is important for Engineers to be linked to the past. Work in progress.

Just to note that Xmas was kinda messy ;) will work on that list soon. Aim to keep it simple until a beast of a CPU was released. To get it right, I am going to be precise as possible. I will include model names as well, for example Thunderbird (AMD) and P4 Prescott (Intel). Then I will just list Socket and FSB. It will be done in parts as it is a lot of information to compile and do properly.

Might want to find a spot in the wiki for your list, then maybe link to it from here.

I've got links to a couple of resources that might help. And yes, if you would like to add the list to the Wiki, I'll be glad to make room.

Rare CPUs
CPU World - CPUs
CPU Socket Chart
Processor and Chipset Tables
Hardware Secrets - Sockets and Slots

I've had these links for some time now, so I'm not sure how up to date they are or how good the information will be, but it might save you some time in your research.

Have fun.

I hate it when work interferes with important stuff.

Was a bit drunk when I posted the other reply. Oh well :D Here is one of the CPU's that kicked it all off for AMD. Alas, I never got to own one of these, I had a Thunderbird XP 1700 instead. Still got a modest Overclock to 2.3 with an Akasa HSF that had a cool looking Green led. Limited BIOS options though, not like the modern EFI of today.

Coming along slowly at the mo, some drying out taking place, but starting with the familier AMD CPU's.

Found another pdf stashed away that might come in handy. It's a 2007 version CPU reference guide from Byte Ripper.

Thanks Bill. I will try to be kind to Intel. Have to say that that the Intel p4 prescott was pretty #### hot. Literally, that started the LQ movement via the modding comunity.
