Intel is kicking off their first official desktop chipset for that Pentium 4
that supports DDR333. We show you what it will bring you in this review of
the Asus P4PE mainboard.
Quote: "Overall performance was on par with other Pentium 4 solutions
although I did expect to see somewhat better scores. I believe the full
potential of the P4PE goes unrealized at this time because features like
Serial ATA are not able to be fully utilized along with Hyper-Threading
performance going untested at this time until HT enabled processors come out
of Intel. Still, DDR333 was needed on the Intel chipset platform and we did
not think they were going to work miracles with it...as we are sure they are
waiting for dual channel DDR to do that."
