Let’s look into the matter. Nevertheless, the iE and E take the lead where the difference is still tangible. The memory controller has already undergone severe changes. Hence the high price of the chipset and a complicated layout of the boards meant for it all the developers have to use a 6-layer PCB design though Intel promises to get a 4-layer one by launch of the spring series of the chipsets. SPECviewperf is a test suite that emulates operation of professional 3D applications, and this is the right benchmark for workstations.

Who brought that stuff anyway? There was a period in time when Intel was only able to claim sales by forcing motherboard manufacturers to produce motherboards based on their chipsets but today, most motherboard manufacturers are more than excited about virtually all of Intel’s chipset itnel. The Intel Pentium 3 went through a few changes but not to the extent we have seen with the Intel Pentium 4.


No stores found in your area. Despite the target market for the chipset, the three motherboards we have rounded up today based on the new chipset can be used as either entry level workstations or high-end desktop motherboards. Check with your system manufacturer or retailer or learn more at chipsef Seems that Intel is now heading the way the market says and not their own way, after all, the market proved they will not do what Intel wants remember the I and RDRAM?

However, the price is still quite high; that is inhel you have to think hard before ordering such systems.
