The possibility of Intel going to 1066Mhz FSB paired with dual-channel DDR2-533 was always there, but...

What we may up getting is...

<b>1066Mhz FSB and dual-channel DDR2-667 support!</b>

Here's the <A HREF="http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/chipsets/display/200404130..." target="_new">link</A>. Intel seems to be reaching for the big guns!!! :cool:

***cough*** ... enable ... 64-bit ... ***cough***

i think that the chance of moving to a 1066 bus is likely however i dont think that they will add ddr-2 667 support.

Alderwood will also have some limitations in overclocking, VR-Zone notes. The clock speed or PSB will be locked down when it exceeds 12% increase over its default speed and the method is by tracking down the source clock.

this should concern any overclocker.

I think it would make sense, but availability of DDR2-667 will probably be low on launch...

And they'd still be running asynch (1066Mhz and 2x667Mhz...)

I thought DDR2 @666 was not due out till next year. Do you really think the beast will use it? they were afraid to have a quad pumped system that had that number.
