DDR333 for P4, from Intel. (0 Comments) (link)
 Wednesday, 9-October-2002  03:02:26 (GMT +10) - by Agg

Intel announced their i845PE, i845GE and i845GV P4 motherboard chipsets today. There's actually been a couple of reviews already in the last few days, but today the real rush happened. The main things these chipsets bring to the P4 is DDR333 support and support for future hyperthreading-enabled P4 CPU's. We've seen how the P4 benefits from RDRAM's higher memory bandwidth, so we'd have to assume the jump to DDR333 over i845E's DDR266 will bring good things. Read the reviews to find out, I guess!

Accelenation have an overview of i845PE, the basic chipset. HardWareZone reviewed an Intel desktop board based on i845GE, which has integrated graphics. TweakTown have a review of that version also. Digit-Life have an interesting comparison of these chipsets against SiS648 and VIA's P4X400. HardOCP reviewed the Asus P4PE, i845PE-based. Bit-Tech reviewed Albatron's i845PE board.
