The Pentium 4 has come along way since its debut back in November of 2000. Starting out at only 1.3Ghz it has progressed to its current state of 2.0Ghz and has undergone many technical changes, with the most recent, the mPGA-478 pin design and the integration of two new chipsets. Today, we are introducing one of the new chipsets for the Pentium 4, the 845 Chipset. The 845 Chipset is very similar to the 850 chipset but with one major difference, it supports conventional SDRAM versus RDRAM, which the 850 chipset supports. The move to a platform that supports another type of ram, such as SDRAM, for the Pentium 4 is a very wise one on Intel's part for several reasons. First, SDRAM is much cheaper then RDRAM. Second, it creates a platform that is much more affordable then the higher end platform of the 850 chipset and allows for the Pentium 4 to appeal to a lower-end consumer. RDRAM is about $70 (2 x 128MB because RDRAM must be run in pairs), whereas 256MB of SDRAM only costs about $20 (and doesn't have to be run in pairs). This is much more appealing to the average consumer, however SDRAM does have its drawbacks. Which will become evident later.
