I hear that Intel is going to release processors with this buss speed. How much extra performance will actually come from this buss increase? Does anyone know if the processors will come in 2.8 ghz speeds?
I was just thinking... What kind of FSB speeds can these guys reach on the OC if they come at low speeds like 2.6 or 2.8.. Interesting..

P4 loves mem bandwith it should give him a nice boost. Specially paired with 2 mb of cache!
I didnt hear of any lower clocked 1066 Prescott altough we will probly see some lower than 3.73ghz I doubt will see any below 3ghz cuz these chip are aimed at higher end sector. Altoguh I could be wrong...
Paired with DDRII 667 with an unlocked 925XE it could probly reach some nice speed with water cooling(at least =Þ )
yes, the Prescott 3.73ghz with 2mb L2 1066fsb should perform roughly the same as a P4 3.46EE 2mb L3 1066fsb. Can't wait to see the benchmarks. I think we will see a substantial increase in performance.
I think a 3.73Ghz, 1066Mhz FSB P4F with 2MB L2 (and EM64T) might even be enough to level the playing field with current AMD processors... to a reasonable level. Intel is getting beaten up in availability and performance right now. It must NOT carry EE's price tag, though, or it will have no impact.
If Intel takes too long, though, AMD might release a 4000+... which will make things that much harder.

if they can impliement whatever manufacturing process they did with the athlonxp's that allowed them to get to 2.5ghz+, then they should have no problem releasing the 4000+
what i dont like is how AMD's naming scheme is always too hgih. the 3500+ should be the 3400+, the 3200+ should be the 3000+ and so on... kinda lame, because the Intel equivilent to the AMD model number is usually a tad faster
