The difference is the process that it is made with.

 

What CPU are you refering to?

0.13 - 1000MHz, 256k L2, 100MHz FSB, 1.5v, Tualatin Core

 

0.18 - 1000MHz, 128k L2, 100MHz FSB, 1.75v, Coppermine Core

 

Both are Socket 370.

Tualatin's may not work on older Socket 370 boards which were designed for Coppermine CPU's.

Coppermine's should work on every Socket 370 board.

no, coppermines work in all socket 370 FCPGA compatible sockets. the original socket 370 boards only worked with the PPGA celerons. while the tulatin was FCPGA2 and worked in boards for it. copper mine worked in FCPGA2 socket, but the PPGA chips didn't. PPGA chips also worked in the FCPGA sockets just fine.

 

 

NOW are we more confused than ever?

Aaaannnnnd, some companies made FC-PGA to FC-PGA2 convertors, to allow Tualatin core CPUs to function in Coppermine boards.

 

Dual CPU? PPGA Celly's will do SMP with some modification, but I don't know if that trick works for coppermines or tualatins.

 

Get the tualatin if at all possible.

how much is a 1GHz P3 these days... i'm sure they're more expensive than a P4... some kinda crazy supply and demand economics or something...

 

like i was looking at options to upgrade my p3 800 a while ago and all the chips were like $200+... craziness :O
