Aug 21, Posts: This is a unique situation for Intel; in the past, the company has traditionally rolled out a new bus speed across most of its desktop processors in one stroke. Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Also, those chipsets haven’t quite arrived yet, so the Pentium 4 is currently your only choice for PCI Express. Customize The Tech Report Doom 3 was playing, but the P4’s lips weren’t moving. I’m also running a RAID 0 array and need a motherboard that supports that.

I completely forgot that it’s the busiest time of the year, that’s right, Christmas means silly season.

I expect the first wave of XE motherboards from Taiwan will be more obliging, opening up some interesting overclocking possibilities for lower-end P4 chips. It should have a big shrouded HSF in the center of the board, set further towards the front then a normal ATX like this one http: Key primary feature you need to keep in exprwss is that this mainboard is capable of a lovely MHz system bus.

Your average Pentium 4 mainboard these days run on the quad pumped MHz front side bus, this one can handle a bit more MHzx 4inrel MHz.

That being said, let’s startup this review. May 26, Posts: Fri Jun 01, 6: GeForce Hotfix Driver If Intel could roll out a MHz bus across its entire Pentium 4 line without too much pain, Expresx believe the company would do so sooner rather than later. I’m looking to squeeze a bit more performance out of my desktop.


Intel’s XE Chipset & FSB Processors Arrive – Legit ReviewsFinally FSB Arrives

There was, J I think, but it was rated at around W! I have an Intel x chipset with a Pentium 4 3. Tue Jun 05, 4: Slummin’ it in Cambridge the original one Registered: While a new chipset is in chlpset, a new board certainly isn’t. He said the MHz bus would chipsrt make its way to regular Prescott-based Pentium 4s, at least through the end offor three reasons.

Enhanced performance architecturewith support for and MHz FSB processors and DDR2 memory, optimizes data transfers between the processor and system memory.

More likely than not, the MHz bus will be confined to Extreme Edition processors because not all Prescott-based P4s are happy on a higher exxpress bus.

A bus with only one seat? While we were hoping for Dual PCI Express x16 compatibility for SLI, Intel still hasn’t thought about this for the desktop sector, in fact 64bit extensions are still only in the mill with Intel, so we have still a few things to wait for from the chip giant, none the less, IXE has picked up where IX started off and helps chipsef system performance.

So a bit surprised, I said sure! A number of companies are preparing core logic chipsets for the Athlon 64 that include support for PCI Express and some of the other new standards in the Intel series, but it looks like none of them will support the full spectrum of new goodies like Intel.

Fri Jun 01, Intel really was chioset the knife when the IX came to market lacking the FSB support, speculating that a brand new chipset and board would be needed for users who wanted to run the latest bus technology. You can find products similar to this one for sale below.

I believe this is an example of the time-honored PR tradition of listing one’s reasons in ascending order of importance.

The big question about this new Extreme Edition processor is whether a faster bus alone can bring its performance into truly extreme territory. Not a bad trade-off, all things considered.

Intel’s P4 XE 3.46GHz processor and 925XE chipset

If you’re not already familiar with the series Express chipsets, you owe it to yourself dhipset go read our review of them. Tue Jun 05, 5: The P4 Extreme Edition 3. Thanks for the help. Overall the Intel XE chipset will be a great replacement for users of older systems such as Intel and Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.
