    Default MMX Motherboard or not?

    My kids have an old Compaq desktop with an Intel 133(non mmx)Socket 7 CPU. I would like to speed it up a bit and put a 200mhz in it. The motherboard will support up to Intel 200mhz, but I can't find any info as to whether it will support MMX.

    I can get plenty of 200MMX CPU's but can't find any plain 200's will it still run alright with an MMX if the motherboard doesn't support MMX.

    Default Re: MMX Motherboard or not?

    The MMX Pentiums (P55C)are 'dual voltage' and therefore require suitable motherboard support. The standard pentiums (P54C) only require one voltage to operate.
