I have a Intel P3 800mhz with a Intel D815EEA Mobo and I was wondering if anyone knows if its possible to upgrade my CPU with this config. Ive seen the P3 CPU as high as 1.3ghz, but I think this requires a new Mobo.
yes, you need a board upgrade. your D815EEA will support only upto 1113/133 MHz, and the latest 1100/100 MHz. Procesors higher than these have a new revised circuitry, the Tualatin core which needs support from the chipset, the i815E has been revised to i815E rev B0.
Intel D815EEA2<font color=blue>U</font color=blue> is the current model that supports these newer processors.
Tualatin processors come in 256k cache as well as 512k cache versions.
<font color=blue>U</font color=blue> is supposed to be Universal, according to Intel :-)

no, RB80526PY005256 is not the Tualatin, it is the 1100Mhz PIII, 100Mhz fsb Coppermine.
I was off by 33Mhz, and I'm still not sure about that, I remember reading that it was re-released around the same time of the Tualatin so back off.
Making things somewhat confusing on the surface are the various clock speeds these new Pentium III chips support. For desktops, clock speeds of 1.13GHz and 1.2GHz are offered. The 0.13-micron version of the 1.13GHz part will be labeled Pentium III 1.13A, as a 0.18-micron Pentium III 1.13GHz is also available (and already shipping to Gateway). To help differentiate the server chips from the desktop parts, Intel uses an "S" to designate them. (The mobile chips are differentiated with an "M".)
Tualatins are available from 1A, 1.13A, 1.2 GHz. <font color=blue>A</font color=blue> indiacates it is Tualatin that has same speed Coppermine model. The 1.2 does not have the <font color=blue>A</font color=blue>.
So is there or will there be a 1.2 GHz Coppermine???
If you had built a car and sold it, and it wound up exploding and had to be totally recalled, and you took it back to the shop and repaird it. Would you re release it with the same name if you didnt have to?
