Intel has released their latest Pentium 4's that are designed to run on an 800 MHz FSB. With the new processor release also came the new chipset, 875P, that supports dual channel memory as well as 800 MHz FSB. Recently motherboard manufacturers have released motherboards based on the older 845PE chipset. These mainboards are supposed to be able to support 800 MHz FSB through overclocking. We tested the ABIT BH7 awhile back and it was able to use the new CPU by overclocking, since the 845PE chipset only officially supports 533/400 MHz FSB.

Today we look at the Gigabyte 8PE800 Ultra motherboard, based on the Intel 845PE chipset. Though the board does not have all the features the 875P has, it is able to use the latest processors from Intel. Also there are performance increases from moving from the 533 MHz FSB to the 800 MHz bus. Read on and see how well the board performs and the features it has to offer.
