The Photo Shoot
No review would be complete without a lovely array of pictures for you people to gaze over. We tried not to disappoint you with this set of pictures of our test bed setup and so forth.
- The Pentium's and an Athlon
First off we have on the left the 2.8GHz CPU, in the middle an AMD Athlon XP 1600+ and on the right, the brand new 3.06GHz CPU which gets the spot light for today. Compared to the 2.8GHz processor, there is no physical difference. The new Pentium 4 processor might be a tiny bit bigger in the die size but it's not visible, at least without tearing off heat spreader and no doubt rendering the processor useless.
- 1066MHz RDRAM - Fast but Costly
Intel supplied us with 2 x 256MB RDRAM modules that are designed for 1066MHz (4.2GB/s) operations. Though these were supplied we didn't use them or the Intel reference I850E motherboard for that matter, due to the fact that very few people will buy these boards or pay the extra price for 1066MHz RDRAM when DDR solutions are a much more attractive commodity to enthusiast users, in a price to performance ratio.
- Our Test Board
As we stated, we didn't use the Intel reference board or memory in our tests, why?
How many of us have I850E boards and 1066 MHz RDRAM? Very few.
Now ask yourself how many of us have I845E, I845G, I845PE or I845GE motherboards with DDR-333 or DDR-400 memory out there? Most Pentium 4 processor users around the world.
So, for this reason, we got our hands on the Gigabyte 8PE667 Ultra (which we reviewed earlier this month which is based on the Intel 845PE chipset), simply due to the fact that this chipset is the new wave for the new Hyper-Threading Pentium 4 processors.
Now let's continue onto the all important benchmarks!
