Thread: Fastest Processor in an IBM 2159

  1. #1

    Default Fastest Processor in an IBM 2159

    Right now there is a Pentium MMX 200 in this thing, I believe it is socket 7. Including upgrade processors, what would be the fastest thing I could put in here if I was so inclined?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    After extensive searching I found this post:

    IBM Aptiva 2159/S90 models are compatible with the PL-ProMMX and the AMD K6-2 400MHz CPU. However, for best performance you may need to get the TweakBIOS utility (to change the ISA bus speed to PCICLCK/4) and PowerTweak (to enable the Write Combine setting).

    Another alert user reports that if the disk drives and CD drives of your Aptiva 2159/S76 won't read after upgrading to the PL-K6-III/400, you can restore full drive operability by using TweakBIOS. Simply change the clock/3 setting to clock/4.
