So I have been waiting for the release of the E2180 – the Pentium E chip that’s also built on the m0 stepping as the E4500. These things are supposed to be highly overclockable, as there are already reports of the E2160 hitting 3.6ghz stable, on air. I am waiting to get a couple of these to upgrade some boxes around the house, as I still have a Dell 400SC sitting here running 5 VM instances, and it’s driving me crazy (it’s got a 2ghz celeron inside).
According to various sources on the net, this thing’s supposed to be released already. But nobody carries it. What gives?
