    Rev 1.04 and 1.05 with 10004 BIOS on PC-DL allows fixed AGP and PCI whilst overclocking - so does the new Iwill DH800....

    Would be great if it weren't for the strangulated memory bus.

    Thats why we are aiming for 800FSB - to improve the std memory bandwidth. Some members have reached 250Mhz DDR500....
    As this board is basically a P4C-800E we can hope for similar bandwidth to that, only we have 2 processors accessing the RAM

    Intel could benefit ALOT if it goes to onboard memory controllers like AMD has.

    @Mr Guvernment - yes, from the results AMD are getting it looks that way, I have heard rumours Intel are considering it.
    The down side is of course having to redesign the memory controller on the chip every time a new type of RAM comes about - P4 would have needed different variants of CPU to use SD, DDR and RDRAM, which would have been inefficent for Intel costs!
    If Intel are adopting DDR2 for the forseeable future then it could be possible to base the next designs on that standard..
