Finally, a quick run of Aquanox at the higher FSB gives us the following. Being an engineering sample with a full choice of any multiplier, what better to test out the overclocking possibilities of the board. It was designed purely to drive the P4 into machines worldwide on cost grounds. No change in CPU voltage was required. 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.

The ICH2 takes care of everything else. We’ll visit a pair of 2Ghz benchmarks, 20 x and 15 x and this time round we’ll drop the 1.
Linux Workstation w/ Geforce2 and Asus P4B
Sandra lets us check that the host chipset is letting the CPU perform properly with the 2 CPU benchmarks plus a quick look at the theoretical memory bandwidth of the system. AquaNox – Auss V2.
Install my cards and hook up the IDE and floppy cables. The manual lays out everything clearly and it’s easy to find information that you need like connector placement.
More on that shortly. Vdimm was left alone 3.
The menu layout ntwork the CD is excellent. Intel have been slashing the price of their Pentium 4 processors for quite some time now.
We can attribute the difference to the lack of available memory bandwidth on the asys. The connectors for the extra hardware like USB and 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.
P4B | ASUS Global
nehwork It wouldn’t boot at 16x multiplier and Mhz FSB. Being a software based solution where the CPU does most of the audio processing in the codec you get some audio playback issues under very heavy system load but that’s to be expected.
What’s not so impressive is that you need an expensive graphics card and very expensive 2Ghz CPU to achieve the score. SDR memory effectively cripples the processor so that it will never operate to its full potential. Asus also provide software to change the voices spoken on the errors. You will never see the P4 really shine on an SDR system simply because it can’t provide the bandwidth that the processor craves.
Price isn’t the main driver for someone looking for a performance system however. The bundle was average in content. However if you look at the chipset in the way that Intel did when it designed it, you begin to see the point. Being an engineering sample with a full choice of any multiplier, what better to test out the overclocking possibilities of the board.
Turn on, start the setup from the BIOS. I noted that the P4T-E didn’t like 16 x for Mhz. Very painless and nothing awus standard or difficult. 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.
Last of all the extra power connectors and the ATX supply. It passed that test easily so I rebooted at 17 x Here’s the command line used. But what about the i? The memory benchmark is p4 interesting. PC DDR gets close at 2. I heard rumours of 2.
