In most cases, the motherboard’s manual includes information on appropriate voltage 04 0672319187 CH02 6/26/00 9:01 AM Page 37 Motherboards CHAPTER 2 37 settings for the CPUs the board accepts. Occasionally this information may be missing, often because the CPU is a newer model than the motherboard. In these cases, check your motherboard manufacturer’s Web site for updated configuration information. CPU BIOS Support As a general rule, a BIOS does not need to include extensive support for specific models of CPU.

This meant that most competing CPUs used L2 caches on the motherboard rather than the CPU (the exception being AMD’s K6-III), and these CPUs were limited to the 32-bit, 4GB memory address space of Pentiums. In terms of speed, though, some of these CPUs compete with CPUs through mid-range Pentium-IIIs.

In fact, it’s the rare modern CPU for which Linux is not available. That’s not to say that Linux works equally well on all these architectures. Some of the pros and cons of each include THE CENTRAL PROCESSING UNIT • x86 Linux’s first CPU was the x86, and given the dominance of the x86 in the small computer marketplace, this is where most of the emphasis is in the Linux community.
