Can someone help me understand these configs?

Hi, I just read tomshardware's benchmarks for the 3000+ Barton. I don't really understand the platform in the test setup for the p4s they compared against. The say that the chipset and ram config for the P4s were:

Asus P4G8X (Intel 7502 chiset) Revision: 1.02
Bios: 1001 (11/11/2002)
Asus P4T533-C (Intel 850E chipset) Revision: 1.01
Bios: 1010 BETA 001 (1-20-2003)
2x 256 MB RDRAM, PC800, 400 MHz, 40ns, Infineon
2x 256 MB RDRAM, PC1066, 533 MHz, 32ns, Kingstone

But there is only one line on all the graphs for each P4 processor. So, did they use the Granite Bay with DualDDR? Or Rdram on i805e? If the latter was it PC800 or PC1066? And if they only used one (which can only be the case because there is one line for each P4 CPU test in each graph), whey did they list the other chipsets/ram in the test setups?

Ask Tom, he's the one who let the sloppy work through.

P4G8X is a dual DDR board. I think the PC800 ram was used with the 400FSB CPU's while the PC1066 was used with the 533FSB CPU's. But yeah that is confusing and I could be wrong. Could just be a brain fart.

Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder.

Hey i dunno what either board is i took a guess but yes i know the 400MHz CPU's (1.8 and 2.0) used the PC-800 RDRAM.......

and as for the Dual DDR i dont think toms article used a dual DDR P4 setup......i could be wrong but either way the whoel article was a [-peep-] up....

"The P4G8X and PC1066 was for all the other P4 CPU's......"

You're saying he put RDRAM into a Dual DDR board?

LoL no...liek i said i know nothign about the boards...

i assumed (sadly) that that board was with the PC1066 RDRAM....
its ok....i bunged up but i also think toms messed up the whoel article...
