The most visible aspect is the copper northbridge heatsink which cools the i chip. Quite frankly, a CSA solution would be much more appropriate since the PCI-based 3Com solution can only handle half duplex anyway and the diagnostics It’s basic marketing that adding flash to a product will attract potential customers, and to that effect the PXPE Pro II does this in couple ways. The position of the auxiliary dual 12V input is directly adjacent to the VRM and once again, there will be some who complain about airflow restrictions but frankly, we don’t see that problem. A related issue is that upgrading the audio configuration from two speakers to e.

Keep in mind that we use the term “relative”, meaning that the absolute performance can still be above average, it just does not scale with the expectations derived from the somewhat inflated performance at stock settings. It seems like only yesterday that Intel brought us the newest member of its Pentium 4 processor family, the IP.

As intrl the P4P, the overwhelming impression is that this is easily the overall fastest board we have laid our hands on thus far.

PC memory falls into the category of Random Access memory, meaning that data can be written all over the place, depending only on which pages are open at the time that the write command is issued. Artificial intelligence is what ASUS calls their new set of features.

The P4P latencies are plotted as solid columns, the IC7 as transparent columns.


Intel I865 “Springdale” Chipset Review

That means, there is always a possibility to run a CAS If it does not, the P4P latencies will rather be in the Springdale-typical range. About Us Employment Privacy Policy. The Ai Springdalle Solution is not that intelligent either since the auto detection of features is limited to the detection of something being plugged into the port, which then still requires manual identification of the device before the system will generate an error message if that is appropriate.

The most visible aspect is the copper northbridge heatsink which cools the i chip. The POST reporter is the first feature for me to turn off on any board that has it. With support for all the major Canterwood improvements sprinfdale a fraction of the cost, Springdale is soon to become the weapon of choice for the mainstream users and hardcore games who don’t want to spend springdaale fortune on Canterwood boards.

A related issue is that upgrading the audio configuration from two speakers to e. Find other tech and computer products like this over at Amazon Canada’s website. It is not clear where that name was derived from, most of the features are gimmicks or don’t work as advertised and the overall impression is that the marketing i865ep at ASUS must think that the enthusiast community is oan bunch of idiots that probably need a bit of Artificial intelligence.

On the other hand, if it turns out that there are no problems, let Intel bitch as much as they want but most likely, they won’t even do that, what better advertising could they get.

One additional item we mentioned earlier is the “Instant Music” keyboard template that’ll fit with some straight keyboards, Ergo- or non-standard keyboard users will have to put stickers on the respective keys included with the board.

The small BGA chipset does not require any form of cooling as it works fine with zero airflow.

PAT, separating Canterwood from Springdale The current line of high-end Intel chipset comprises two different lines of chip, that is the iP and the i family. Moreover, how can it live with the amount of overdecoration ASUS added in form of its Ai feature bundle?

At the same time, the SoundMAX technology enabling these features will only install when four or more speakers are already plugged in. Examples are the keyboard and mouse as well as the Lann power-up options. The CPU Vre allowed the somewhat disappointing range of 1.

After one week of going through all possible permutations of latency settings, some of which would work, others would not or only randomly and at default, nothing would work at all, we are left with the impression that there are still some rather serious issues. We did not check for the trip point at which the performance setting defaults back to the longer pipelines by default. Privacy policy and Terms of Use. At default settings, the P4P once again destroys the rest of the field.

However, since the only meaningful score for system performance is the CPU score, which, with an identical CPU becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy but still makes for a good waste of bandwidthwe’ll just leave it out and stick with 3DMarkSE. One thing interesting about the Ai Overclocking was the fact that its use was the only way of forcing memory settings other than 2: And then, there is always still the possibility to sell the Canterwood chipsets to the OEMs. Frankly, I have no problem believing this.
