Thanks Hilbert for forwarding this article from his site, it makes for a good read. Intel submitted a processor to Guru of 3D that you will hardly find in the stores yet, the Pentium 4 2.80 GHz with new 533 MHz system bus, it's the latest model of the Pentium 4 and was designed to bring you some brutal horsepower in your gaming rig, let's call this a little Ferrari power under that hood of that PC. We tested it the gamers way .. loads of gaming related benchmarks and of course some performance tests also.
- Along with the processor we received an Intel mainboard, the D850EMV2 which is based on the Intel 850E chipset. The processor is an engineering sample, therefore you'll notice a confidential sign laser branded on-to that CPU which is based on the latest stepping Northwood core.
