    Has anyone read, heard, or just speculated on how fast intel will make processors for the 533 FSB? It seems like bus speeds are changing faster than ever. 3.5GHz, over 4 GHz? Whaddaya think? Any comments welcome and appreciated!

    PS Wiggo - Are the wiggles still making new shows down there?

    the next generation of chipsets all support an 800MHz FSB...so I think that will be the next big thing


    but when you consider that 800MHz is the effective rate & it's really just a "quad-pumped" 200MHz...it's really only 2 (33MHz) steps up from a 133FSB that PIII's were running at 3-4yrs ago

    RDR, thanks for the answer. I just bought a 533fsb board w/ a 2.4 in it, I just kinda wondered how fast I'll eventually be able to upgrade to. I know the 3.06GHz is the fastest out now, I just wonder how far it'll go.

    Thanks again!

    3.6 will not be a 533mhz system bus cpu. 3.06 is, as far as I'm told, the last 533mhz system bus cpu intel will release. However, my source has been wrong once or twice before, but I doubt you'd see a 533mhz system bus p4 proc over 3.2ghz (24x133). The 800mhz system bus p4's are due out in april along with the 800mhz chipsets. 2.4, 2.6, 2.8 (I believe, would have to double check the 2.8), 3.2 and 3.4 are cpu's that will run on 800mhz system bus w/ htt enabled.

    However, the 800mhz system bus p4's are pin compatible with the existing p4 boards, and you will be able to run 'em in an existing p4 board... just not at 200mhz (unless you get lucky and your board will overclock that high, so you can run your proc at stock heh).

    Depends on the board manufacturer... you can bet gigabyte and msi will definately have boards out at or before the launch, or at most a few weeks later :) However, you could always go with an intel board :D It'll be out when the 800mhz p4's are out :)

    Dual Channel 400Mhz DDR 800 FSB Boards should be available around mid May or so. I'm not so sure on when the processors will be out though.

    As for the 533 FSB processors, I think they'll go higher then 3.2. Intel is pushing the 533 FSB as their "mid to low line" systems while the 800 FSB is the "high end" stuff.

    It's going to be a sweet chipset. Fast as hell. By the way, if you want a good stable board, go with the Intel board. They are just slightly behind on speed compared to other boards, but they are rock stable and hassle free. But then, I work on Intel boards for a living, so I may be a little biased. :p

    I have an Intel board to and I must say that I've never ever had any mobo issues....
    I shall stir the gates of hell once more and stare into the jaws of death and laugh, for I will know fear no more.
