    Intel Pentium 4 3.4GHz Prescott

    "Indifferent performance, heat problems, lack of S478 upgrade potential, and strained availability, at the end, all count against a recommendation for the Pentium 4 3.4GHz Prescott processor. Looking at the overall situation from an enthusiasts point of view, we'd either plump for a slower Pentium 4 Northwood and i865PE motherboard or any number of AMD setups. Spending big bucks now may prove to be a foolhardy decision in the near future"

    Prescott needs to get onto LGA, and up to 4ghz. Then we might start seeing more promising reviews.

    Nice review - though the table on one of the pages was too wide and went onto the dark right hand side of the site (at 1024x768.)
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Right- Prescott really was designed to work with BTX air flow, Alderwood type mobo power circuitry, etc, etc.
