As the benchmark numbers already concluded, the 815TX is performing very close to the high end Asus P3V4X motherboard using the PRO133A chip-set. Most of the differences are around 0.5 Ė 1.0%, which we canít count as an improvement. If you noticed, the 815TX was the weakest under the Sandra 2000 CPU Bandwidth benchmarks. I couldnít comment on this little issue now, but if I had to take a guess, I would say that it has something to do with the PHOENIX BIOS used with the unit. If it is BIOS related, I would say that this could be improved with a BIOS update in the near future. Iíll keep you up to date with this when I get the chance to speak with Azzaís people next week.

As for all the other benchmark numbers, the AZZA 815 performed acceptably. Nothing too shabby though. The 815TX mainboard ended up being a very stable unit, as we didnít experience any problems after using it in one of our main systems for over 72 hours. Even when overclocked at 133MHz, the unit has been very stable.

As you might already have read in other online publications, motherboards using the 815 chip-set generally perform better than the 133APRO solutions from VIA. Itís not always the case with the 815TX, but the results remained acceptable in almost all the scenarios. We wouldnít have a problem recommending the 815TX motherboard for the ones planning to build a lower cost system, as the price of the 815TX should be lower than other 815 mainboards on the market.
