the main reason for that is that the vast majority of P4's are locked...
and no-one knows of any way to unlock them, unlike the athlon/duron and its L1 bridges.
that leaves P4 operators with only the FSB to play with... and its generally accepted that most RDRAM out there cant handle anything above PC900.
that equates to a FSB of around 112.
almost as bad as the earlier athlon/duron B models and their FSB.
a shame really. of the few articles ive seen where the tester was given a factory unlocked P4 they show its easy to get 200-300 Mhz speed increase.
i believe, but cant be certain, that THG was one of these. check through the early p4 articles.
P.S. my athlon 1200C came delivered with uncut bridges... how easy is that to overclock?
