K6-2+/K6-III+ CPU System And Motherboard Compatibility List

List assembled and maintained by King V

Many many thanks to the various members who post to the forums of K6 Plus! as well as AMD Zone for their input, without whom this list would NOT be possible.

In particular, Gizmic and Theory240, from whose work a good portion of this list came in the beginning.
Special thanks to Jan Steunebrink for creating the various patched BIOSes to work on some of the motherboards that might not otherwise correctly support the K6 mobile processors. See: The Unofficial AMD K6-2+ / K6-III+ page

Form Factor
Note that "Baby AT+ATX" indicates a Baby AT board that also has an ATX type connector.
Chipset
I believe that Sis 530 is the same as SiS 530+5595, ie: all 530s use a 5595 as well.
Max FSB
Maximum supported Front Side Bus setting in MHz. Note that if there are two numbers separated by a slash, the first is the maximum officially supported FSB, and the latter is a higher speed known to exist but not documented, and therefore not absolutely guaranteed to work in all cases. Furthermore, most FSB settings over 100MHz on Super 7 boards are not guaranteed, success at using them is questionable, and may require additional steps such as disabling on-board cache, even if the speed is officially listed in the manual.
Board Rev
Earliest Known revision of this motherboard that supports the K6 mobile CPUs as stated. Note that if there are major differences in how different revisions of the board support the CPU, they will be listed separately (example: the BCM VP1541)
BIOS Req'd
Earliest Known version of the BIOS that will work correctly with this board for mobile K6 CPU support. You can generally assume that later revisions of the board or later BIOS versions than shown will work, unless otherwise noted.
Wrong POST
If the system in the POST screen seriosly misidentifies the CPU, a Y will be marked here. This is for example if the system calls a K6-III+ a 486, or say a "-MMX", or something equally strange. If the system merely omits the + sign, or shows the wrong speed (regardless of whether the system actually runs at the correct speed), then this column will be marked N. That is, this is to make sure the general TYPE of CPU is correct.
Clk Util Req'd
If the board for some reason will not allow you to set the processor its correct speed, and a software utility is needed to set the clock speed of the CPU properly, this column will be marked Y. (ie: a K6-III+ 450 CPU will only run at 350 at most despite having the correct jumper settings)
Feat Util Req'd
This column will be marked Y if separate software is needed to correctly set up the features of the processor, such as Write Allocation, and Speculative Write Ordering settings.

5169 ALi Aladdin V ATX 100 2.1 ? N N Y 2.1 version of the board doesn't work with the latest BIOSes because the BIOS ROM chip size is too small. Use either "optimum" or "fail safe" settings or system will be EXTREMELY slow. Most BIOS settings reported to have little to no effect. Use of cacheonw.exe needed.

Only compatible if clock generator (near the AGP slot) has number 82ICS9248-131. A user has reported that the ICS 9248BF-131 clock generator will also work with the + procs. Perhaps they're the same, perhaps the former is needed for 97MHz bus speed compatibility.

2170-xxx   Y N N Y Uses the Acer V75M motherboard. See motherboard section above for further details. Updated BIOSes should be available at IBM's website.
All others   ? Y Y ? Most, but not all, socket 7 based IBM PC can use the K6-2+ and K6-III+ procs if the low voltage settings are available, though most need feature and/or clock utility, and some require a voltage converter. Starting off with 3.0x multiplier helps if higher ones won't initially work, then use the clock utility.
