    Did you se this line
    "overclocking-horney people, who think that a system that needs rebooting only three times/day is already 'rock stable"

    For those of you that don't feel like reading the article. Here's a brief summary:


    Summary:
    It's unbelievable but true, Intel's old 440BX chipset at 133 MHz FSB is beating any other Coppermine-platform. Intel's 820 looks really bad and even i840 had to lose a lot of feathers. Rambus seems to be a rather nasty disappointment.

    If everyone just used Celerons (like me) then chipset functionality at 133FSB wouldn't be nearly as important. If my C400s ever ride a 133MHz frontside bus then I'll start worrying about it.

    It's all SETI's fault they've been bribing Intel to use a higher FSB so they can get more WU's done. Hehe like a carrot to a donkey

    Long live the BX chipset!

    RAMBUS sucks.
    Plain - just think of the architecture, it can't possibly be any good. Its just all wrong - and the idea behind it is ancient, which is why its a stupid system.

    That kind of memory system has its applications, lots of them, but damit, not in a soft-programmable computing system.

    Well anyone that has a basic elementary education can figure out that 16bit is inferior to the DDR SDRAM 64 and 128bit data transfer. I beleive that its the data. Anyways RAMBUS is intels slimey way to get people to buy it to think THINK they are getting something good. HA Just like willamette being at a supposed 1500mhz, remember them saying 1.5ghz can be made to work like a 3ghz. I bet you its 750mhz made to work like 1.5 ghz. MARKETINGGGGG.

    The article was not about DRDRAM vs. DDRRAM. It was about current chipsets that are available for Intel based 133 MHz FSB CPU's.

    Look FFS cut it out you two, I post what the hell I like in whatever forum I like so why can't anyone else.

    NiteOwl sorry to say this m8 but you can't take greavenses out when your a mod.

    And Jeffy this has gone on for a while now (not that you said anything this time) but it's time to forget.

    just to show I'm happy

    Psyduck, I wasn't slamming Jeffy. I was pointing out the scope of the article was about current chipset with regards to 133 MHz FSB as I felt Jeffy's statement was way beyond what the article was about.

    I am not saying I care about what Jeffy thinks of me, but just FYI:

    However, as I have said, my statement was about Jeffy reaching beyond the scope of the article.
