insane schrijft: "Lost circuits heeft een review van de 500 en 550MHz FC-PGA PIII in elkaar gedraaid, compleet met Winstone, Winbench 3DMark, Truespace en overclocking benchmarks. Hier een hap uit de conclusie":
The new FC-PGA 500 / 550E CPU brings new performance levels to the Socket 370 platform. In a clock for clock comparison with the Katmai-based Pentium III, the FC-PGA takes full advantage of the ATC and advanced system buffering and shows a substantial lead, at least in business applications. The interesting aspect is that the FC-PGA is priced very competitively, albeit substantially higher than Celeron processors. However, it appears fair to claim that most of the FC-PGA processors have excellent overclocking potential and, at least 700 MHz should be achievable without problems, beyond that, it is the luck of the draw. One needs to keep in mind also, that pure clockspeed not always translates into higher performance since, even in a stable running system, we observed decreasing performance above 715 MHz which we interpret as the result of occasional cache misses rather than a limitation of the core itself. Increasing the core voltage to 1.65 - 1.7V did not increase achievable clock speeds, neither did it remedy the falling edge of benchmark scores or the variability thereof at clock frequencies of 730 MHz or beyond.
