New GIGABYTE v3.3 Boards to Supports 1333MHz FSB

New GIGABYTE v3.3 Boards to Support 1333MHz FSB

GIGABYTE will be launching their new revision 3.3 boards end of January and it is the first in the industry to deliver native 1333FSB support on 965P series. It will be able to support the next generation 1333FSB E6x50 Core 2 Duo processors like E6850 (3.0GHz), E6750 (2.66GHz), E6550 (2.33GHz) coming out in Q3 this year. The keyword here is "Future Proof". GIGABYTE claims a CPU performance jumps up to 5% comparing with FSB1066 and boost a 10% enhancement for Memory performance.

This is only good for ppl who dont want to overclock. Now they will be able to buy DDR2-667 memory.

how is it only good for those who dont wanna overclock? (Im seriously asking, not being a dick). I would think now, with all those high rated DDR2 modules, that it can be taken advantage of and actually have uber numbers.

Dont worry I wont be mad at u if ur a dick ;)

The short answer is that they are charging u extra for overclocking it for u, when u can do it urself in a matter of minutes.

The 1333Mhz FSB is bad, because its factory overclocked to 1333Mhz. All these new CPUs that are coming out and supposedly taking advantage of this higher FSB are all the exact same, and they can each get to the same FSB freauency if overclocked. Its not as if it being 1333Mhz means that u can now have a 5000Mhz FSB if u overclock.

This is the issue as exsists with graphics cards. The "factory overclocked" or OC models are overclocked a tiny ammount by the manufacturer, wich then actually Charges u for the overclock.

The point is that u can get to 1333Mhz if u start out with 800Mhz just the same and u can overclock both of them to the exact same level, just like when u buy a 90nm graphics card - it will get u to 650Mhz no matter what, so why pay for the manufacturer to overclock it for u?


So obviously, these FSBs are for ppl who do not know/want to overclock.

Who are these people? Most people. (the ones that dont know what we know and cant enjoy the 50%+ overclock and increase of performance that we can have :D)

how is this bad i mean honestly? sure you can get to a 1333mhz bus rather easily from 1066 but its a logical progression. p4 started at 400mhz or 100fsb and moved to 166 and then 200. this motherboard is actually standing out as everyone will know its stable past 333mhz fsb. hell its garunteed.

I'm the only one
well mines at 2000fsb now,so what gives with a "new" board that supports 1333 when mines doing more than that now?

so i guess the base fsb on the new boards is 333 then?

Its really simple. Now your have a cpu with a higher bus from the start instead of having to o/c it thus creating more headroom for overclocking. At least thats how I think it is.

Actually a cpu with a higher bus from the start has less headroom, because it comes with a Lower Multiplier than its 1066FSB or 800FSB Counterpart.
