What happens when Intel decides to try to get away from RDRAM and use normal SDRAM on their new Pentium 4 Processors? Just head on over to Hardware Zone and see in their latest review covering the Chaintech 9BJA Motherboard. here's a snip:
"As with all i845 chipset mainboards, the Chaintech 9BJA features support for the new mPGA 478 processor form factor. The board also comes with five PCI slots, as well as a CNR slot below the fifth PCI slot. Memory fetish users should also be happy to hear that the i845 chipset permits the 9BJA board to support up to 3GB of SDRAMs. As CPU-zilla pointed out in his MSI 845 Pro2 preview, 3GB of memory is quite ambitious at this point of time, since the highest density for PC133 SDRAMs is only 512MB. Of course, that could change in the near future."
