Thread: 800 Mhz Fsb Released From 2.4 Ghz Up

  1. #1
    It appears that Intel today has released the 800 MHz FSB for all (P4's) models down to the 2.4 model. And they support hyperthreading and dual channel DDR SDRAM.

    This implies price drops in other categories, so the ones with a slower bus will obviously be cheaper.

    FYI: very few programs even utilize hyperthreading. Those that do aren't used by average consumers.

    Which few do?

    I do not consider myself "average."

    An analysis of hyperthreading:

    Maybe we should ask Intel to research if hyperthreading could devote a couple of threads to K++ B)

    That's a good question. My understanding is mainly hardcore graphics building and film editing software used in the broadcast industry. (I don't know titles tho)

    It just reminds me of when the Geforce 4 Ti cards came out and something like 2 or 3 games[@ that time] fully utilized their capabilities. Quake 3 and Aquanox are two that I can remember.

    Anyways, I wander if any current O/Ss can utilize it. Maybe someone will post an answer to this.

    I've got to say though, since I'm building a new PC, I'm glad all the other prices will drop.

    I foresee a lot more posts....

    "For example, corporate PCs can more easily run anti-virus software, compress files and encrypt e-mail simultaneously and consumer PCs can run games while editing video, Santa Clara, California-based Intel said."

    "Intel's technology essentially fools the operating system into thinking it's hooked up to two processors, allowing two threads to be run in parallel, both on separate 'logical' processors within the same physical processor. The OS sees double through a mix of shared, replicated and partitioned chip resources, such as registers, maths units and cache memory."

    "Intel to cut Springdale prices in June, but cheaper boards unlikely to be seen until after mid-3Q"

    Article detailing the price drop:

    But Canterwood is supposed to be superior.

    Yes, they have managed to double the FSB from 400MHz to 800MHz, I saw a PC in the PC Pro magazine and I think the clock speed was 3GHz.
