The Pentium-M Dothan core is a great mobile processor, but it also has the potential to be a formiddable desktop processor too. Hexus put?it?to the test in combination with?the DFI 855GME desktop board.
Snip: "Performance wise, there’s one thing that stands out from the analysis and observation of P-M’s scaling with nothing more than its base frequency: it’s crying out for core logic to let it breathe and perform to its fullest; there’s definitely plenty of extra performance to be had by pairing P-M with Alviso core logic. There’s also extra performance to be had just by upping the CPU’s bus clock, so the upcoming 200MHz Pentium-Ms, using Alviso, should give very fine performance, comparatively."
