It has been close to two months since the release of AMD’s 760 chipset, the first Socket-A chipset with support for the 133MHz DDR FSB and DDR SDRAM to go along with it.

Linpack is prominently featured among their benchmarks. Does the title bear out? I’m not going to spoil it for you, but the memory bandwidth results are, shall I say, interesting. Definitely worth a look, even if you have your heart set on a DDR system.
