We are AMD dealers and we have an "AMD 233" on a server at our internet site
the past three months.Its works well .Our NT server has an "AMD" 300 and its
works well .
We had a core dump problem with an intel 166 MMX,the problem was the "kernel" .
The "AMD" is as fast as a P-233(on 32-bit system)with the correct mainboard .
