    Thumbs up 3GHz Pentium 4

    Intel is going to be releasing their 3GHz Pentium 4 processor this Thursday. Its gonna have some new hyperthreading technology in it. New P4s with the new hyperthreading are gonna have a 'HT' on the P4 logo. What the hyperthreading is supposed to do is increase efficiency on the existing P4 architecture. Looks to be intresting!

    3.06GHz to be exact

    Hyperthreading has been known about for some time, rumour has it all P4's have it but it's been disabled. It's beneficial with multiprocessor supporting software which sends multiple threads to the cpu's. With the P4 - and Xeon's - there is only one cpu but logic units within the chip are used simultaneously to give a multiprocessor effect.

    Benefits of up to 20% apparently, the coolest thing is you'll get two graphs in Windows (XP,2k etc) when you [ctrl]+[alt]+[del] as Windows essentially thinks it's running two cpu's, or with a dual Xeon setup four!

    Must bear in mind though; P4's have been overclocked to near 4.5GHz no need to buy these premium chips.

    Yeah and think how high they can get now if they start at 3gig, maybe 5.5?

    i have a 475MHz processor i think i will hide in the back room, doh i`m in the back room.

    overclocking is where you tell your pc that it has a faster processor than it has.

    scroots
    Spammers next time you spam me consider the implications:
    (1) that you will be persuaded by me(in a legitimate mannor)
    (2)It is worthless to you, when i have finished

    With liquid nitrogen and no fear of losing $100's of dollars of hardware.

    And from what I remember, they weren't able to keep it at 4+GHz for very long.

    You can safely overclock a P4 with just air cooling but only a few hundred megahertz, but it doesn't matter how much you overclock, as soon as you do you void your warrenty.

    how do you overclock your processor?

    (what do you do to your machine?)

    Your cpu speed is derived from two things; what's known as the 'multiplier' and the front side bus frequency (fsb). multiplier x fsb = clock. Multipliers are generally locked and unchangeable, the fsb may be altered in the bios depending on your motherboard.

    Overclocking means heat though which is why LN2, freon coolers like the vapochill and prometia, and TEC/H2O coolers are often used.

    The smaller manufacturing process used for the P4 - and now top XP chips - means the chips use less power and so give off less, heat being the overclockers enemy means the gains in overclocking these chips are quite high.

    what is a good % or proportion should one respect when overclocking as a general rule?
