- Intel's P4 XE 3.46GHz processor and 925XE chipset

Intel have today raised the bar in performance computing as they make an effort to close the gap on AMD's FX line of A64 processors. They've officially unleashed their LGA775 based Pentium 4 3.46GHz extreme edition processor along with the highly anticipated 925XE motherboard chipset which brings a 1066mhz quad pumped FSB to the scene. Just like clockwork, reviews and articles have been popping up from all angles in the past few hours which you can get to below :-

Today Intel is making the move from 800MHz up to the 1066MHz FSB, with the release of the Pentium 4 3.46 Extreme Edition. Priced at $999, the 3.46EE will be followed up by the 3.73EE as the only two chips to support the faster FSB for almost a year. Current Intel roadmaps show absolutely no support for the 1066MHz FSB from any processor other than the two aforementioned Extreme Edition chips until the end of next year, when Prescott-2M chips will finally receive 1066MHz FSB support; there are also plans for dual core 1066MHz FSB chips although they have not been publicly outlined on any roadmap.
