Everything is laid out logically, accessing the CPU settings is easy and the memory settings also have their own sections. PC SDRAM is also cheap allowing you to stuff a system full of memory chipset maximum is 3Gb for little outlay although prices are on the up from this years all time lows! Just a quick glance at the following POVRay bench results tells you that everything is within spec and running fine. I didn’t talk about it that much in the P4T-E review so I’ll cover it in a bit more detail here. As the P4 market has matured, more chipsets have appeared for use with them.

ASUS P4B – motherboard – ATX – Socket – i Overview – CNET
The means all P4 Socket axus are guaranteed to always fit so there will be no questions like on some AMD boards when using 80mm sinks like the Alpha and Swiftech’s famous MC range. The i will never win any performance benchmarks. Price is the main reason. The menu layout for the CD is excellent. Lastly in the layout, dotted around the board Installation was painless.
The manual is also excellent. Oh look, the P4B has been announced: Intel would love to achieve a greater market share with the P4n 4 and the i lets them do that.
We’ll visit a pair of 2Ghz benchmarks, 20 x and 15 x and this time round we’ll drop the 1. Intel have been slashing the price of their Pentium 4 processors for quite some time now. The P4 is effectively throttled and it will stall while waiting for data from system memory, reducing it’s effective IPC and therefore performance. You will never see the P4 really shine on an SDR system simply because it can’t provide the bandwidth that the processor craves.
I heard rumours nnetwork 2. As the P4 market has matured, more chipsets have appeared for use with them.

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. The Pentium 4 processor likes memory bandwidth. The answer in the case of the P4B and it’s i chipset is yes.
PC DDR gets close at 2. Another super stable board from Asus with their usual quality mark all over it. With the adjustable Vdimm up to 3. However if you look at the chipset in the way that Intel did when it designed it, you begin to see the point. More on that shortly.
ASUS P4B – motherboard – ATX – Socket 478 – i845
Here’s a quick rundown of a few results. All that’s different is the chipset and CPU. At Mhz, SDR memory provides a maximum bandwidth of 1.
As expected, with all other things static and the FSB increasing, we see the expected score increase of points. Given our PC memory and the engineering sample CPU netwirk it’s unlocked multiplier it was trivial to test the claim. So why starve the P4 of what it craves? Quite a few choices for the P4 buying public. Asus have taken half the advantage of the extra features on the ICH2 and implemented the onboard AC’97 audio.
Linux Workstation w/ Geforce2 and Asus P4B
It was designed purely to drive the P4 into machines worldwide on cost grounds. Good English, clear and well laid out.
Very painless and nothing non standard or difficult. 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.
