  AMD (CPU/Processor)
  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

It runs great for a single core processor at 2.8 Ghz
It can run both 32 and 64 bit software or OS.

Was not recognized properly on my motherboard (Gigabyte GA-MA78GPM-UD2H) instead being an AMD unknown.

What doesn't work:

For some reason in Mint 14 it ran only at 800 Mhz when I had the multiplier set to AUTO in the motherboard's BIOS, so had to set the multiplier to 13.5 and run it at 2.711 Ghz instead. Most likely just function of motherboard, but I thought the processor was locked to a multiple internally. Can it be overclocked? Apparently on the Gigabyte motherboard.

What was done to make it work:

updated BIOS from F1 to F7 on motherboard so it would be recognized properly.

Additional notes:

Does everything you need currently for internet only use. Fast enough for all the streaming videos such as youtube and news sites.

THIS HAS SINCE BEEN UPGRADED TO MINT 16 "PETRA" AND WORKING FINE.
