Today, we'll be reviewing the Asus P4PE which is the first mainboard that arrived to our lab to implement the most recent i845PE Pentium 4 chipset out of Intel -- one that is meant to support speeds of up to 3GHz CPUs and over. The P4PE's biggest selling point: is its support for DDR333 memory, meaning better performance, and greater memory bandwidth.Review Link : Active-Hardware
The fun doesn't end there though, because the ASUS P4PE also comes complete with an (optional) 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet controller, and full support for "Type B" 533MHz FSB Pentium 4 processors.
With Intel's "Hyperthreading" technology, multithreaded applications are even able to work more efficiently on single-CPU systems, and experience a 40% average increase in performance.
