OverclockersOnline.Com has checked out Soyo's 845PE based motherboard, the P4I 845PE.
The heart of the Soyo P4I 845PE, is like the name implies, the Intel 845PE chipset. With the 845PE, Intel released the final "845" based chipset which has proven to be quite successful. The 845 first saw the light when Intel needed an alternative for the 850 chipset which required RDRAM. At that moment the 845 brought PC133 SDRAM support to the Pentium4. Although PC133 was not the ideal partner of the P4, Intel had no other choice since it could not support DDR memory until the RAMBUS deal was over ... Afterwards, the 845D was released, finally supporting DDR memory. Later on, the 845E was launched, which added support for a 533MHz front side bus needed to power the P4-B CPU's. And now, there's the 845PE, which adds Hyperthreading to the list of supported features as well as DDR333 support.
