Are you impressed by 800MHz Quad Pumped Bus-supporting i845PE/GE-based mainboards? Well, Soltek already discovers another overclocking phenomenon called Intel 865-series for even more advanced Pentium 4 and
Today the mainboard maker said it had managed to get its i865 powered mainboards SL-86SPE(-L) / SL-86MP(-L) to work stably and correctly at PSB overclocked to 1200MHz.
SL-86SPE(-L) / SL-86MP(-L) mainboards adopt i865PE and i865GE + ICH5 chipsets,
officially support 400/533/800MHz QPB processors, feature 4 DIMM slots for up to 4GB of PC2100/PC2700/3200 memory (dual-channel memory bus support: memory modules used should be identical and installed in pairs), an AGP 8x, 6 PCI slots, 2-channel ATA-33/66/100, 2-channel Serial ATA-150, 10/100Mb/s Ethernet controller (for -L only), 6-channel AC'97 sound, USB 2.0 and so on. Soltek claims that thanks to its unique R&D efforts, these mainboards are able to be overclocked to 1200MHz Quad Pumped Bus, although, it does not guarantee that every such device you get in a retail shop near you will also be as overclockable.
In addition, the mainboard manufacturer announced today that its
PS. I wonder what all these mainboard makers will do when actual 1200MHz QPB-supporting chips will come out. Will they overclock their products towards ultimate 1600 or maybe even more megahertz?
PPS. Be sure to read more about Soltek's upcoming mainboards in this news-story.
