Pentium Dual 805 2.66 GHz clocked over 4GHz...

No way am I especially tempted to get into overclocking and messing about with things myself, but I know many are...

so when I came across this article I thought I'd share it because it does look like the sort of thing that could (almost) justify the practice to me....

Although pushing the clockspeed upwards sounds good for performance, I'd prefer it if the manufacturers just produce a cpu with a low clockspeed and low power consumption that does almost the same amount of work as one with a high clockspeed..... the likes of Pentium M

This won't happen because most of the buying public associates the clock speed with the amount of work that it can do.

The thing is an Athloon 64 3500+ on Winchester core already provides the same processing throughput that you get with a pentium overclocked to 4Ghz. I belive it was either HardOCP or THG have the article where that was discovered though I could be wrong.

Yes, it is proven that an AMD64 3500+ is the equivelance of a 4hz Pentium 4 Prescott. BUT, that is not a Dual core Pentium. Anyway, that 4ghz intel will be surpassed by the Conroe, Which will be surpassed by something else.

It's a steal of a deal if you want high end power, for low end cash. That's why I like overclocking so much.

i also saw that article and am very tempted. but i don't want to get into watercooling though, which is what you'd need at the 4ghz mark.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
