Pentium 4 i850 mPGA 478 motherboards

For those interested in purchasing a socket 478 Pentium 4 platform with an i850 (DRDRAM) chipset, I have put together a list of available motherboards made by a variety of vendors. I am not endorsing anything; just providing a list. Here they are:

  1. Raystonn, the TH7-II has onboard LAN. I wouldn't have known that, except I was just at their site looking at it :)
    And you might want to mention the optional RAID on that and others.

  2. Do you happen to know offhand which motherboards, besides the obvious TH7II-RAID, have RAID?

  3. The P4T is Socket423. Not Socket478. Unless the -E version is Socket478, but I couldn't even find a P4T-E anywhere on the Asus site.

  4. Check the link again. I modified it about 2 minutes ago to point to a more specific location.

  5. No, I don't. Sorry

  6. You can also get the TH7II without RAID

    newegg.com has good 2 of these in the refurb section for cheap.
  7. Oh okay. Stupid me... I didn't notice that all of the items were already linked... I just went to the Asus site and tried to find it.

    Right, which is why that's the way Raystonn originally listed it, and then I asked if he was going to mention that it comes with RAID.

  9. Now lets see Novemver is coming, I can see it in front of me, a line up of the Northwood boards couple of reviews and then the all mighty benchmarks a head to head clash against AthlonXP1800+ (or the next Pr rated AThlonXP?). Can it be more exciting? no i don't think so.:)

    Pricing, i wonder how much a Northwood cpu will cost?....will it be priced like current P4's or can we expect even lower prices (relativly speaking)?

    BTW when will the Northwood+DDR chipset be released?
  10. that would be a nice comparison...

    athlon & athlon XP vs p4 & northwood using
    sis735, kt266a, sis645, nforce vs p4x266, i850, ?

    Religious wars are 2 groups of people fighting over who has the best imaginary friend.
  11. The i845 with DDR memory sockets will ship Q1 of next year (likely in January.)

  12. What we need now is a review of each of these motherboards with special attention paid to whether or not they could get it to work with PC1066 DRDRAM.
