Launches Barton at 3000+ but Can It Take the Triple Crown?

512K AthlonXP processor they set their sights high. While Thoroughbred
(AMD's .13 micron code name) implies a solid level of performance
by referencing a well-bred horse, the name Barton has a more specific
meaning. The original Barton was Sir Barton, the first horse to
win the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness, and the Belmont.

HHC-001 Heatpipe cooler
A heat pipe is a closed system that uses the natural properties
of liquid to move heat from one location to another. Essentially
there are two ends to a heat pipe, hot and cold. The hot end is
at the source of the heat, in this case the bottom of the heat sink.
The cold end is near the top.

4 with Dual DDR: Endurance Test of Seven Mainboards with the Granite
Intel's E7205 chipset (alias Granite Bay) is descended from its
E7500 server counterpart and is supposed to speed up the Pentium
4 by means of a dual-channel memory interface. And this workstation
chipset really does offer the best performance of any DDR-SDRAM-based
product. We rounded up seven of today's boards in our lab for a
test of strength.
