Pentium 4 is a brand by Intel for an entire series of single-core CPUs for desktops, laptops and entry-level servers. The processors were shipped from November 20, 2000, until August 8, 2008. The production of Netburst processors was active from 2000 until May 21, 2010. All Pentium 4 CPUs are based on the NetBurst microarchitecture.

E7221 (Copper River) chipset server solutions deliver outstanding system reliability and performance without compromising on the cost. Targeting at entry-level server platforms, they support the latest Pentium® 4 processors with Hyper Threading Technology. Follow this guide to replace the motherboard on your Sony Playstation 4. The motherboard and optical drive are paired, thus replacing only the motherboard will result in a non-functioning device. Be sure to order the correct paired optical drive and motherboard for your PS4 model and replace both. Unplug your PS4 before beginning any repairs.

The Intel 850 Chipset
The 850 is Intel’s third attempt at core logic using direct RDRAM (the first two were the 820 and 840 core logic for the Pentium III). Specifically designed to mate with the Pentium 4, the 82850 memory controller hub supports dual-channel RDRAM, creating an aggregate memory bandwidth of 3.2GB per second. The chipset supports the 64-byte L2 cache line size of the Pentium 4. There’s the usual support for AGP 4x, complete with sideband addressing and fast writes (fast writes weren’t supported in the 815). The 82801BA I/O controller hub (ICH2) is the same chip used in the 815 motherboards, and has full support for USB 1.1, ATA/100 and other current standards.

The 82850 is specifically designed to support high bandwidth between the CPU and memory. Although the frontside bus (FSB) is only clocked at 100MHz, it’s capable of four samples per clock (much like AGP). This yields a data rate of 400MHz, and with a 64-bit wide interface (8 bytes), that equates to 3.2GB/sec FSB bandwidth, directly matching the dual-channel RDRAM interface bandwidth. The high-bandwidth philosophy matches that of the Pentium 4 itself, which was designed to facilitate very high speed data transfers.

The 8-bit wide connection between the MCH (“north bridge”) and ICH2 (“south bridge”) clocks at 66.6 MHz, like the hub interface as in the 815, and is quad-sampled, resulting in a 266MB/sec peak throughput between MCH and ICH2. The “hub” nomenclature is used since the PCI bridge now hangs off the ICH2, rather than being the direct connection between the memory controller and I/O controller. (The terms “north” and “south” originally referred to “north of PCI” or “south of PCI”).

All the Pentium 4 motherboards based on the 850 chipset we’ve seen also require an extra 12V power connector. Building a Pentium 4 system means you need a power supply with the extra 12V connector. Active coolers (heatsinks with fans) are now attached with two clips in most cases, rather than one. All the sockets in the 850 motherboards we tested used a pair of clips to clamp down rather beefy heatsinks. The upside, though, was that these were among the easiest coolers we’ve had to install or remove.


We took a look at four different boards based on the Intel 850. Not surprisingly, results were similar, as they often are within a chipset family, all other variables being equal.

P4 may refer to any of the following:

1. The P4 connector is a 12V power supply cable used with motherboards that have an Intel Pentium 4 or later processor. Today, the connector is a standard power connector and is used with both Intel and AMD motherboards. As seen in the picture, the P4 cable has two black wires that serve as a ground, and two yellow ones that are +12VDC. All of these wires attach to a four pin connection on the motherboard.


P4 Motherboards

If you purchase a new power supply with an 8-pin connector and your motherboard only needs a P4 connector, you can separate the 8-pin into two 4-pin sections.
