Alsof we er nog niet genoeg gezien hebben, heeft ook GamePC nu een review gepost van de Intel Pentium III Coppermine 850E FC-PGA. Deze processor draait op een 100 MHz busspeed (8.5 multiplier dus). Overclocken was daarom ook geen heel erg groot succes:
As you can expect, there wasn't much overclocking success with the 850E, although we did manage to hit the magic 1 GHz for a few minutes. As most other FC-PGA chips can usually clock about 200 MHz higher than their stated speeds, we were a bit disappointed by the results of the 850E, but not all too surprised. The 850E was able to clock up to 935 MHz (8.5 x 110) without problems, but after that was hit and miss. The board would boot at 03 MHz (that's the BE6-II's way of saying 1003 MHz), but wasn't stable for long, and quickly crashed running Windows applications. All of you hardcore overclocking-types should be able to get this thing over 1 GHz easy, keeping it at stable levels might be another story though.
