Well we have reached the end of the review. Here are my final comments, notes and grades for the Intel Pentium III 800EB. 


Final Comments

How It Grades
  Performance: 94%
Price: 68%
Longevity: 80%

Overall: 81%

All Pentium II or lower Pentium users will clearly have immediate benefits in terms of performance if they switch to a Pentium III 600EB or best to a Pentium III 800EB which is very powerful. As our tests demonstrated: a Pentium III 800EB is approximately 1.8 times more faster than a PII450. The gain in performance reaches 43%! So it’s really time to change your chip! However due to the high price of the Pentium III 800EB the best value buy is the Pentium III 600EB. Pentium III users will gain little performance by changing Pentium III 600EB to 800EB, only 23% in the best cases. 

But Pentium III first generation users should consider changing their chip for the latest “Coppermine” ones that come with a 133Mhz FSB and 256Kb of full speed cache. However to close this review we think that the i820 chipset is slightly disappointing since it isn’t really optimized for the latest Pentium III chips. Finally hard-core gamers will experience ultimate performance with the latest Pentium III 800EB CPU from Intel, so really why wait? Let’s go ahead and buy it!
