Motherboard Upgrade

By jdwilson ·
I have a ASUS P4T-E motherboard with 512mb of RAMBUS PC800 ECC memory. I think it is 184 pin. I would like to upgrade my motherboard with a newer one that would use the RAMBUS memory I have.

Basically I wanted to upgrade my processor to a P4 3.2, the motherboard I have now only goes to a P4 2.4.

Can anyone suggest a newer motherboard that would use this memory.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Intel touted RAMBUS as the 'best' RAM technology.

When Intel switched to DDR RAM to improve their benchmark test scores (to get match the scores from slower AMD CPUs) that pretty much sounded the death nell for RAMBUS.

Even Intel no longer offers a RAMBUS based motherboard.
