Dual PIII 1ghz Benchmarks
Posted on: 04/03/2000 12:34 PM

With all the talk lately about Intel's PIII 1000 not supporting SMP, the guys over at Hardware Central decided to try it themselves. They threw together a dual PIII 866 (based on the same core and stepping as the "true" 1ghz PIII's) and overclocked them to 1000. To make a long story short... Intel appears to be full of crap again. H.C. had no problems running the chips in a dual configuration, and they have a slew of benchmarks to prove it ;-)
The 1 GHz Intel Pentium III seems to be the subject of much controversy, as many claims have been made about its inability to run in a dual CPU configuration. HardwareCentral has been following the discussion closely and decided to put an end to all the rumors and get a couple of GigaHertz Pentium IIIs and a dual CPU motherboard and find out what exactly is the truth of the matter.
