View Full Version : High Clocked P3's Benching High High Scores??

When I posted a 3Dmark score last week, I was thrilled at my results for my processor speed, but was alarmed (suprised) at the avg. scores for some PIII's with my same vidcard. These things were clocked @ 1.7 & 1.8 ghz!! Who'se clocking these? or are they just single/dual Xeons or something? I'm scared but intrigued!

I wouldn't be surprised if they're Tualatin cored p3's.

The Tualatin core (.13 micron, 512k L2 cache) is quite nice.

ya, they had to be Tualtins, they run at pretty cool temps. So figure if they got a nice 1.4ghz tualatin, and OC it a little bit than you got a DAMN fast PIII system. And yes, it's extrmemly expensive to do this. I doubt those were liquid nitrogen scores you saw, only people that don't mind spending a fortune on an old chip.

In reality though, the PIII was a better designed chip than P4. About the only problem I see with it is the slower FSB, and no DDR support. Other than that, I wouldn't mind having a 1.4ghz PIII system :D

anybody a lotto winner? LOL They start at $210... bleh... I guess I'd rather buy a AthlonXP2400 at that price

I have a 1.3 Tualtin Celeron that will over clock to 1.820 but I have to up the core voltage to 1.65 to get it to run stable, so I am sure the Tualtin PIII 1.3 will overclock great.
