    I don't have that copy of CPC, but I reckon so.

    That CPU is also in my brand new Laptop.

    Don't read Custom PC, but that is a Pentium M 'Dothan' core if that's what you're asking.

    After reading the article on it, it seems really promising, much like (or even more so) that the XP-M. I think that mobo makers had sort themselves out before this chip can fly because iirc, there arent too many that can use it, and the ones that do at the moment only support 2700 memory.

    Still, get CPC and read the article. Its quite astounding that this is based partly on old P3 architecture!!

    The problem is that the motherboard makers are limited to using Intel's notebook chipsets, because although the processor uses the same quad pumped bus as the P4 the signalling voltages are different, or something. The best notebook chipset Intel do is the 855GME, which is limited to (you guessed it) single channel PC2700. DFI chose to integrate the 855 with one of Intel's server southbridges hence the PCI-X socket. They're shooting for sales in the server market as well as to enthusiasts (the low power/cooling requirements of the Pentium-M make it an ideal server chip).

    The Inquirer have been banging on about how good the Pentium-M is for ages now, and there are a few threads on www.xtremesystems.org discussing OCing them- some have got over 3GHz out of them on LN2.
