Everything is laid out logically, accessing the CPU settings is easy and the memory settings also have their own sections. Click to find out more. We’ll visit a pair of 2Ghz benchmarks, 20 x and 15 x and this time round we’ll drop the 1. At Mhz, SDR memory provides a maximum bandwidth of 1. Here’s the command line used.

With the adjustable Vdimm up to 3. Just a quick glance at the following POVRay bench results tells you that everything is within spec and running fine. Here’s a quick rundown of a few results.
Lastly in the layout, dotted around the board Installation was painless. The board is packed with onboard headers for extra items like a smart card reader and their iPanel for system monitoring. Vdimm was left alone 3. Click to find out more.
The bundle was average in content. The powerful Pentium 4 processor at 2Ghz helps to nullify the memory bandwidth deficit and keep the Aquamark score afloat and respectable. The menu layout for the CD is excellent.
The Asus CD is ehernet containing all the drivers for the board, applications and read me’s for the hardware. Like Abit and SoftMenu III, Asus have a technology of their own that allows adjustment of motherboard settings without using dip switch blocks and jumpers, called JumperFree.
With a low cost chip that operates with low cost memory and also provides a couple of extra, useful function effectively for free like AC’97 audio and Ethernet then you can see how a P4 box can be made very cheaply indeed. The i is the only SDR choice at the moment and boards are quite popular and it’s an i board that Adus have given us in the P4B. How will performance users judge the aus systems? SDR memory effectively cripples the processor so that it will never operate to its full potential.
The connectors for the extra hardware like USB p4h the smart card reader along with the DIP switch block for adjusting the CPU and the ATX case connector block are all grouped in the same area along the bottom right hand edge of the board.
ASUS P4B-M – motherboard – micro ATX – Socket 478 – i845
It was 16 x that I tried initially. It performs as it should do given its speed. After tweaking the FSB, the quickest stable speed was Mhz 16 x To give the system a fair chance I chose 1.
This resulting decrease in price lets system builders worldwide get the P4 out to the masses for less money than a i based system with RAMBUS memory. What was the best tech product of ? I heard rumours of 2. Personal preference dictates that a top edge placement is best for me, however anywhere near the top extremities isn’t a bad thing. AquaNox – AquaMark V2. Asus also provide software to change the voices spoken on the errors.

Intel would love to achieve a greater market share ethernst the Pentium 4 and the i lets them do that. I’ve been keen to look at other options for the P4 since my first taste of the platform with the MSI Pro5, another i board.
When buying this board, be intelligent and try and use it as a sensible upgrade path to something higher performing. Asus have taken half the advantage of the extra features on the ICH2 and implemented the onboard AC’97 audio. I’ll try and look at things from both sides when I conclude the review so both camps etthernet be etherjet to see if the Asus is for them. They’ve taken advantage of the AC’97 implementation in the ICH2 and provided the headers and connectors needed for on board sound.
Good English, clear and well laid out. Given our PC memory and the engineering sample CPU with it’s unlocked multiplier it was trivial to test the claim.
