Pentium 4's over 3ghz

Recommended Posts

Have a read of this:

http://www.neoseeker.com/news/articles/headlines/Hardware/1852/

 

Now tell me, since this was in august. Would mobo makers have changed their designs by now?

Its becuase I am looking to build myself a system, and i want a futureproof (Hyperthreading support and 3ghz+), USB 2, AGP 8X mobo with DDR-RAM.

I dont mind the chipset being VIA or SiS, but i just want it to be damned futureproof.

With PCs, no matter how hard you try, "future proof" is impossible.

 

If I were even remotely interested in the P4 I wouldn't touch DDR with a 10 foot barge pole. With the P4, RDRAM == teh win.

According to that link it doesnt have AGP 8x, and thats one of the core things i want. i dont know why intel, who have made the AGP 3.0 spec, wont put it onto their chipsets.

If I were you I would wait till the chip is actually out, and then you can make a decision and know that it will all work, and have the features you want.

 

Looks like im gonna have to finally get rid of the TH7-II if i want Hyperthreading frown as i doubt they will enable it for an 850 based board, if thats even possible smile
