And it's worth trying for those who got the 1.66 duo, since o/c to 2.0ghz (200X10), a net savings of $300 per Dell's website. I would try it, but I got a awesome price on a 6000d that's now pin-modded 1.7 --> 2.26
I thought each pin had it's own fsb... 100,133,166 not sure why intel would need 100 or 133 but i coulda sworn that's what I saw... if this is not the case then the added pins can only be for futureproofing which means PINMOD! but we will probbably know more when intel releases the Merom chip... by then all the puzzle peices will be put together...
anybody else notice how this is sorta starting to look just like the pentium m series...
400Bianas--400Dothan--533Sonoma single core series
667Yonah--667Merom--800Merom dual core series
only this time instead of extra cache we get lower latency cache and 64bit... also this is kinda interesting but the desktop cpu's seem to be exactly the same as the notebook chips... so one day we may be able to stick in a merom Extreme edition with HT into our lappies..
(and then PINMOD IT)
