Asus vs. MSI - Pentium 4 Mainboard Showdown
Posted by Philipp Esselbach on: 02/28/2001 12:37 PM [ Print | 0 comment(s) ]
HardOCP has posted a comparsion review between the Asus P4T and the MSI-850 Pro Pentium 4 mainboard.
Both of these motherboards utilize Intel´s i850 chipset. For those of you unfamiliar with the this latest offering from Intel, I´ll briefly go over some of the highlights. The i850 supports the Pentium 4 CPU, and this CPU´s "quad pumped" CPU interface. Or more accurately, a 400MHz Front Side Bus. Both of these i850 based motherboards came equipped with four Rambus Inline Memory Module (RIMM) sockets, which support up to 2GB of Intel PC800/PC600-compliant RAMBUS DRAMs (RADRAMs), which are available in 64, 96, 128, 192, 256, 512MB densities. On the disk side of things, we have the now standard ATA100 protocol support, to help you get the most out of that new 80gig hard drive Santa delivered to you this past Christmas.
