Default Did HP make this up?

Today in the ads I saw an HP advertised as having an Athlon XP 3100+ processor with 512 MB PC2700 RAM. There is an offer to upgrade the CPU to an XP 3200+ for just $10 more. Is there really such a thing as a 3100+, or did they underclock a 3200+ and lower the FSB to 333 MHz for the PC2700 RAM?

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me". -John 14:6
