1333 FSB vs. 1066

What would the benefits be of getting a board that supports a 1333 FSB over a 1066 FSB? I am hoping that I will be able to stick a Penryn chip on my board when they are released... and they are all 1333.

Assuming that it will be possible to add the chip, I am afraid that a 1066 FSB would seriously limit their performance. What kind of performance gains would you expect from a 1333 FSB, all other things being equal?

  1. 10%? Thanks, bud. That'll seal the deal on a 1066 then.

    I was having trouble with the lack of other options for boards with 1333 FSB (like limited SATA connections).
  2. The DQ6 by Gigabyte (the rev 3.3) supports 1333 fsb and it has 8 sata connectors. If you need more than 8... well... you may want to start looking at server boards. The board is based on the p965 chipset.

    I just posted on this in this thread:

    I typed it up in response to this thread, but posted it there (same subject). It shows 16% improvement in SuperPi on my settup.
    I like this MSI board, though it has only 4x SATA, 1x eSATA, and 2x PATA ports. (I need the PATAs)
