I'm planning on trading a 500Mhz Celery to my friend for a 466Mhz Celery so that I can run dual CPUs on my BP6. Anyone have some good SMP articles/benchmarks? I'll probably run Win2K on it, and it might become a router sometime in the future, but the main reason I wanna do it is cuz I wanna make full use of my BP6, and 33Mhz difference in CPU speed won't matter much cuz an SMP system handles multitasking better than a single CPU, even if the program isn't multi-threaded.

I don't have any stored in my favorites but this is what I got from a quick google search:

Hmm, i just read on anandtech's site that you can run 2 CPUs of DIFFERENT clock speeds?? That doesn't seem right, I've always remembered that SMP systems need 2 CPUs of the SAME clock??
