The future for Intel appears to be a
re-engineering of their power consumption
across the product line, with greater
emphasis on work/watt and less emphasis
on raw clock speed. Thus, look for their
dual-core CPUs to shrink in size again, and
to emerge much cooler and scoring higher
in work/watt, e.g. by leveraging the
superb engineering that produced the
Pentium M (see THG's article on the
37 Watt system).

This switch was motivated by a realization
that dual-core Prescotts could not be clocked
above 3.4GHz without generating excess heat.
Thus, the 840 has 2 x 3.2GHz Prescott cores
for now. Be prepared to address overall
cooling and ventilation in your case,
if you choose this route now.

For a good PCI-Express motherboard,
we highly recommend the ASUS P5WD2-Premium,
going for about $200 wholesale. It runs
all current Intel CPUs.

If you don't need any of the benefits of PCI-Express,
then the ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe with 875 chipset
is still available (~$170): look for the 3.4GHz
Northwood core (512K L2 cache) because it
runs faster and cooler than a comparable
Prescott core. These Northwoods are a
vanishing breed, however, because Intel
has migrated to the Land Grid Array (LGA)
instead of the Pin Grid Array (PGA).

<A HREF="http://www.intel.com/products/chipsets/index.htm#deskto..." target="_new">Here</A> is a list of Intel chipsets. <A HREF="http://www.intel.com/products/processor/pentium_D/index..." target="_new">Here</A> is the info on the Pentium D CPUs. Note the list of chipsets that Intel says support Pentium D: 955X, 945P, 945G and E7230. Here are some boards with the 955X: Gigabyte GA-8I955X, Asus P5WD2, Abit AW8-MAX 3rd eye II and Foxconn 955X7AA-8EKRS2. Sorry about the confusion with the P5AD2. Remember that google is your friend and you are allowed to do research before asking questions...

and neither should you. It will never cut it as a reasonable facsimile of a chip.

Or just go with an AMD 3800+ system - it owns the 830D.

Before the Hurricane I was really close to ordering a 4800 X2. Now im to curious about Intels new design and what it will offer. AMD X2 is certainly the waY to go if your buying today.

Intel 3.73 EE @ 5.6Ghz
