The chipset should be sufficient even for the workstation solution with the features we added. Compared to our previous review, our 3DMark03 score was once again signifi- cantly lower at compared to in our last review. The AGP slot is slightly offset from the PCI slots and fea- tures a self-locking latch that holds the card to the board. ASUS’ main plant in Suzhou, China, cov- ers over acres, the surface area of a small village or football fields. Before we could install WinXP, we needed to create a driver disk.

The only difference between the and the is the ECC memory,” said Chiang. Introduction Chapter 2 Hardware Installation Process To set up your computer, you must complete the following setps: Connecting your chassis to the audio head- er, however, disables the rear audio jacks. This number is up from By increasing the FSB, you can increase the processor’s clock speed.


At a resolution 1, xthe improvement was less significant; at our highest testing setting, the faster chip didn’t really look much faster at all. We were willing to bet that MHz was the sweet spot, and we were right. The LAN chip and southbridge are both adorned with matching aluminum heatsinks.

A lever on the side of the socket controls pressure on the processor’s legs. Before we could install WinXP, we clocck to create a driver disk.

In fact, some of our game demo speeds were slower than they were prior to overclocking. Previously, we were able to run Halo but not Doom 3.

That score, however, was still almost points better than Intel’s Extreme Graphics 2. ASUS’ main plant in Suzhou, China, cov- ers over acres, rela surface area of a small village or football fields.

By the time we reached 1, x 1, scores fell to just The slots are attached to a switch with the ability to regulate the data flow.

These bracketed headers are tucked between two PCI card slots, and depending on your tastes, this is either a nice space-saving move or a complete pain in the neck, especially if you use PCI cards with a lot of bulky components.

As a result, the integrated graphics aren’t very impressive. This expensive processor boasts 2MB of L3 Cache to help improve performance. Finally, at 1, x 1, we managed a solid That’s why we went ahead and installed our 3. A separate con- trol line determines the type of packets a link is carrying.

And though the DRAM voltage setting won’t go as high as many other boards, you can still increase this option to 2. Some boards such as the 5G Pro utilize a passive heatsink on the southbridge something rarely seen with the ICH5.


The chipset should be sufficient even for the workstation solution with the features we added. We’ve heard about the fragility of the new design and were a rral cautious, but the socket was less fragile than we feared.

In addition, the board contains two bracketless internal USB headers and a standard range of front-panel connectors. Halo scores were also lower compared to the previous board. VIA’s new VT southbridge should bring as many im- provements as its upcoming line of northbridge chips. However, heatsinks, processors, and memory modules continued to consume more space inside the ga-7dlxdw.

The Marvell con- troller features the VCT Virtual Cable Tester net-diagnosing utility, which can detect a bad cable at up to meters. At 1, xframe rates fell ga-7dppxdw slightly to Nonetheless, we didn’t get off to a very good start with this board. ABIT in- ga-dpxdw two iridescent pads just below the locking lugs to protect the PCB from be- ing gouged by the heatsink clamps. There’s also precious little space between the three RAM sockets.
