If your motherboard has a VX chipset, and a cache slot, it dates from probably 1996. It has a 66 MHz bus, and probably a 2.5 multiplier setting max.

Name and model number are what I want to know.

Yes, the K6-2 is an AMD product. In 1996 you could buy a motherboard, and choose a CPU made by Intel, Cyrix, AMD, or Winchip, all Socket 7. AMDs run great on Intel chipsets.

Yes, it is a standard Socket 7. Super 7s were released in early 1998 or so, and featured 100 Mhz bus and AGP graphics.

To understand better, see Oldie tuning .
