Benchmarks (2)





This benchmark represents the memory bandwidth with each chipset. The 850 is leading with its dual RDRAM channel boosting 3.2GB/s. Note the big improvement of the 845D over the 845; the bandwidth is doubled when using DDR. The VIA P4X266 is slightly under the 845D.



This benchmark is similar to Sysmark 2001; it tests real world application performance.

Let me make no mistake when I say that the NB72 is a great board; stability and value are without doubts the 2 highlights that make this board special. Unfortunately as the benchmarks showed, the 845 SDRAM chipset is not impressive in any of the benchmarking applications we used. SDRAM PC-133 (1.06GB/s) memory is simply not enough for the Pentium 4. For the high-end user we can't really recommend buying an 845 SDRAM board right now simply because a DDR version will start appearing in the very beginning of 2002 which will offer superior performance for almost the same price.
