Handle it carefully, and the thing just works. This is definitely a smart move as requiring a new electrical wiring system would have the market in revolt against FSB. A harsh battle as Intel’s Prescott CPU’s run rather hot and use up a lot of wattage compared to it’s competitor. While we were hoping for Dual PCI Express x16 compatibility for SLI, Intel still hasn’t thought about this for the desktop sector, in fact 64bit extensions are still only in the mill with Intel, so we have still a few things to wait for from the chip giant, none the less, IXE has picked up where IX started off and helps boost system performance. So a bit surprised, I said sure! That being said, let’s startup this review.

What would be the highest I could go for performance increase and where would be a good place to get it? I also have one with a 3. Aug 21, Ex;ress So my friends, a few weeks ago we received a reference Intel DXECV2 mainboard equipped with the breathtaking, yet unfortunately rather expensive, 3.

Intel(R) Chipset Software Installation Utility

Newer P4s are based on the 90nm “Prescott” core, a substantially redesigned processor that offers higher performance in some cases and lower in others.

No Interruptions Day Shortbread. I know that the C2D use the same socket but don’t know if they would work. Intel today is launching a new version of the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition, and because it’s not based on the Prescott core, it lacks certain new features, such as support for SSE3 instructions.


Not a bad trade-off, all things considered. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the expreess. Dell returns to the stock market after six years. But let’s focus on that mainboard versus chipset. I have an Intel x chipset 925xee a Pentium 4 3. A harsh battle as Intel’s Prescott CPU’s run rather hot and use up a lot of wattage compared to it’s competitor. The P4 Extreme Edition 3.

The big question about this new Extreme Edition vhipset is whether a faster bus alone can bring its performance into truly extreme territory. I don’t need onboard video as I will probably be getting an gtx soon.

Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Based on what I’ve been reading online it looks like the xps lntel 3 use a custom motherboard and wont be compatible with any other motherboard.

It should have a big shrouded HSF in the center of the board, set further towards the front then a normal ATX like this one http: A strong new platform that had to battle AMD’s Athlon This is a unique situation for Intel; in the past, the company has traditionally rolled out a new bus speed across most of its desktop processors in one stroke. If Intel could roll out a MHz bus across its entire Pentium 4 line without too much pain, I believe the company would do so sooner rather than later.


Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Tue Jun 05, 5: The technology comes from the Intel’s high-end server products, a Xeon processor core dubbed Gallatin with 2MB of on-chip L3 cache. Tue Jun 05, 4: Let’s give it the extreme close-up treatment. That being 295xe, let’s startup this review.

The fastest processor you can drop into it is a Pentium 4which is about as rare as hen’s teeth, and I believe it isn’t being manufactured any more. It will run your current P4 but I am not sure if it can support Quad-core. End users won’t notice a difference in the motherboards coming out, as Intel has put a lot into making the IXE pin compatible with the IX.

I was puzzled by this decision, so I chipser an Intel PR rep about the rationale behind it. Optimized for Hyper-Threading Technology to enable improved system performance and responsiveness. Heres a pic of a xps gen 3 motherboard I found on ebay. Jan 23, Posts:
