when setting a cpu, it's nice to know what the clock-multiplier is.....
but it isn't necessary as most cpu's, (after about 400odd) were multiplier locked. it didn't matter what you set the multiplier to, it would still work and what it knew it was supposed to work at.
so, if you set the speed, your away at that speed x cm.
a current Piv 2.8ghz @ 100 fsb is 28x on the multiplier
Anyone got any idea if these will work on the BP6? They're not expensive and if they'd work it would make a super upgrade to any BP6 mobo!

I would also doubt that they are a good upgrade. A GHz VIA C3 has often been described as powerful as a 500MHz Celeron...
I really do agree with you.
The C3 Processors are indeed weak in fpu, but a C3 750 takes only 12 Watts at 100% CPU load.
But i read that VIA presented a dual processing board with two cpus.

Maybe these Eden-N cpu will run on BP6, but someone has to find out for himself - and report us his conclusion...

Via C3s are great ONLY in situations where low power cunsumption or low noise(no fans needed) is more important then actualing processing power.
