Surprisingly enough there are only a few Pentium 4 boards on the market now. This could be because of shift in socket design and low success of the processor at this point. However, once the processor moves to the new socket design and the chip moves to faster speeds the Pentium 4 should become a mainstream processor, much like the Pentium III. As many of you already know, most Intel motherboards are auto-detect and you don't have any control over the multiplier, hence you have little room for overlocking. Intel boards have been very popular with OEM manufacturers and pre-assembled computers and they usually aren't very popular with [H]ard computer folk because of their lack of overlockability. Today we will be taking a look at the Intel D850GB Desktop board that uses the Intel 850 chipset and has support for the Intel 1.3Ghz ~ 1.5Ghz processors. The D850GB motherboard takes advantage of the NetBurst micro-architecture that the Pentium 4 uses. Make sure to stop by later in the week for a extensive look at the NetBurst Architecture in our upcoming Pentium 4 review.
