Pentium 4 Engineering Sample


Recommended Posts

hey does anybody know how to get an engineering sample P4 with an unlocked multiplier? I want something that can be overclocked like a mofo and I have heard that P4's can do it but I need one with an unlocked multiplier...

 

 

so if anyone could hook me up with some info that would be awesome

you want on the list? you better be able to provide a DARN good reason why you should even be considered.

 

Then comes the NDA, and with it the chance that the chip will only be a "loaner" and you'll have X number of days before you have to ship it back... or they burn your house down. the NDA on intel's side is also specific about NOT overclocking the chips, while AMD almost encourages it.

 

and once you're on that list... you may not get anything for a long time. I've been on that list almost 2 years now. 18months of which I got NOTHING out of them. in 6 months 4 chips that were all loaners. In the year I've been on the AMD list, 37 chips, 5 motherboards. much better to work with :).

one of my friends gets engineering samples as i guess he tests stuff for intel or something...he gets tons of like free parts from some budget that his group is given for buying hardware(after they test it)

 

something like that..i tried to convince him to get me an x850 :D heh
