It's been a long time coming but finally, the Pentium 4 platform has gone mainstream enough that motherboard manufacturers, like Abit, are building motherboards with the "Power User" and "Tweaker" in mind. We've seen a bevy of motherboards recently released for the Pentium 4, with DDR SDRAM chipset from Intel, SiS, and VIA. However, RDRAM boards, with a few exceptions, have been a little bit more straight forward with fewer bells and whistles than their DDR counterparts. Regardless, Abit's fantastic TH7II-RAID for the Socket 478 Pentium 4, made quite a splash when it hit the Labs, back in August '01. It has been an in house favorite ever since. In the event RDRAM is new to you, the current spec for RDRAM memory is labled "PC800". That is to say the standard clock frequency for the memory bus is a clock doubled 400MHz speed for a total of 800MHz. It's a little confusing if you think of the technology versus DDR, which specifies the speed in the name, in bandwidth versus clock speed. "PC2100" for example runs with only a 266MHz (133MHz DDR) clock but has 2.1GB/sec of bandwidth. In contrast, PC800 RDRAM boasts 3.2GB/sec of bandwidth. Now, we've been getting rumblings that Intel is readying a "PC1066" chipset, which has a 533MHz clock doubled memory clock for 1.066GHz and a 133MHz Quad Pumped Front Side Bus at 533MHz. We can't wait to get our hands on a motherboard based on this chipset.
