  3. I didn't ready the reviews you posted but I did read the one at
    http://www.anandtech.com, it looks like the last review you posted (of the
    OC'd 915?) wasn't so invalid after all. According to the article on
    anantech.com the higher FSB and DDRII did very little to help out the P4.
    Intel really needs to get it's act together and come out with something good
    again.

    It was actually an overclocked 875P chipset. No, I didn't think going to the
    actually-designed-for-the-job 925XE would actually help them much at all,
    however it still wasn't a fair comparison until this chipset came out. DDR2
    has a long way to go before it's competive with DDR1, that's for sure. The
    overclocked 875-chipset (with DDR1-400) was as fast a DDR2-667 on 925; take
    into account price/performance ratio and DDR2 is left in the dust.

    Tom's hardware shows that it runs better with 667 (which clocks to 711 with
    the 1.3 multiplier) memory, but still not as good as it should be. I agree
    with anand that the P4EE is not a good choice for this architecturally. It
    would benefit Prescott much more. Why they didn't build it for Prescott
    just yet, who knows!

    I'm surprised that Intel even tried to get another P4EE out of the
    Northwood (actually Gallatin, since it's really a Xeon) core. It's
    obvious that the Northwood tops out at 3.4Ghz. Prescott (probably
    actually Nocona) might have gotten them upto 3.8Ghz.
