Anand heeft z'n Socket 370 C366 binnen en heeft er wat mee zitten spelen. Binnenkort mogen we een review verwachten. Hier alvast zijn eerste bevindingen:
I must admit that it is difficult working on three different reviews at once, however I've been informed that I'm receiving another Socket-370 motherboard tomorrow so I'm going to hold off on the Celeron 366 (Socket-370) review until after I've finished playing around with that board. To tide you over until the review, I've got a few things I can tell you about the Celeron 366 (Socket-370):
- The processor is clock locked at 5.5x, however it is not bus or frequency locked, meaning you can overclock it just like any other Celeron processor
- Cooling the chip isn't too big of a problem, you can still use older Socket-7 heatsink/fan combos, however they will fail to cover the entire surface area of the chip. In my tests, this hasn't hindered stability at all, but you're better off getting a true Socket-370 fan to be on the safe side
- Unoverclocked, the Celeron 366 is a nice medium between a Celeron 300A and an overclocked 450A, when overclocked using the 83MHz FSB speed the Celeron 366 does distance itself from the 450A, and, 550MHz is a possibility.
- I'm going to wait until I get a couple more samples of the Celeron 366 before commenting on how stable the processor will overclock to 550MHz, however it looks like the Celeron 366 @ 550 will soon replace the our beloved 300A @ 450MHz.
