Thanks for the news - I'm really waiting for this BIOS and will buy a 9npa+ Ultra as soon as I can get a X2 4400+ too.
But three questions

1. Why do you attach a screenshot with a single core cpu?
2. Does C'n'Q work with the X2 cpus? (The reviews in the net were done with ASUS boards that had C'n'Q disabled)
3. When can we expect the final BIOS, as the official X2 presentation seems only 2 days away?

Greetings
mibo

I guess a dual-core CPU would still be considered as a single CPU.

ET, will the nF3 boards support these X2's or will we need to go nF4?

Just media BIOS at the moment - all official BIOS will be with us shortly for all 939 platforms wether PCIe or AGP or mixed type board.

The BIOS screen shows with single core CPU showing differetiation to old BIOS that didn't have the ability to show 1 CPU's or 2 CPU's which we added.

What about free dual-core CPU's to go with the update? Just as an aftersales incentive?

BTW, please let me know why max Vcore option in 9NPA+SLI Power BIOS vary depend on the type of A64 CPU apply; for FX-55 only up to +2.5V, on the other hand up to +3.5V for Sandy 4000+

I bet you wouldn't!!!

My g/f is in the UK so I have to fly back to her every weekend
- kind of takes the edge off the fact that the weather is generally about5 degrees hotter than the UK down south here in Capelle Schollevaar and Wadinxveen.

I have to get ready now for the train / flight to be at Luton for 13:40 local time.

Sweet - we can always count on you to make great performing clocks - well done Fredyama.

The variance is I think due to the VTT and VRef difference on 90nm CPU - the equation works differently due to the difference in Vcc of CPU.

Thanks ET.

Since have very poor technical knowledge, will try to digest what you have just explained.

Anyway, Vcore Mod of either MoBo is way beyond my knowledge & skill...

Just stick to Sandy for now.

As always, thank you so much for your quick response.

PS
Look forward to your results on x2 4800+

Just flashed 9NPA+Ultra 5525 BIOS. Cleared CMOS. This is very interesting. When I only set FSB up to 267 MHz (nothing else did), CPU vcore was automatically increased to 1,6V. Think it worth to try other different settings, it may be more interesting
