We’ll try the test at Fastest to garner an idea of total throughput and then at Quality to represent something that mirrors actual playing resolutions. This one takes a while to complete. However, even when set to jumper-free, you still have to manually change the DDR voltage by jumpers. Everything is stowed away neatly. We’re using Xmpeg 2. Vcore can be raised from 1. We’re looking at speeds greater than real-time here.

Here’s a quick look at the CPU adjustments available. Using our XP 13xcooled with a modified dual-fan Taisoland 1. The Asus, whilst not the best, is certainly in the top half of those that we tested. RAID 1 is more commonly used to back up data as one drive simply mirrors what’s is on the other. Just a brief glimpse reveals that Asus have loaded the board with some rather nice goodies.

We liked the use of the C-Media sound chip, we also appreciated the quality of the manual and general appearance of the package. It appears as if the better memory optimisations, coupled with running memory asynchronously, really help the MSI here. We could successfully run our XP 13x on the board without any problems, an upgraded BIOS may be needed for future processors. Let’s pay a visit to page 1 of our benchmarker’s Bible and try the old favourite that is Quake 3.


All benchmarks were conducted at xx32 85Hz with vertical sync disabled. The Asus seems to fall short of this little bit extra, it does a lot of things well but fails to set our world on fire. Although latency is cut in half, you do sacrifice some security as RAID 0, by it’s very nature, has no redundancy.

ASUS A7V266-E, Socket A, AMD Motherboard

Through preliminary tests we were able to ascertain that SETI is extremely sensitive to memory bandwidth. Out attention is immediately drawn to the number of jumpers and dip-switches on the board, something we are seeing less of these days. As part of our stability testing, we ran SETI.

Perhaps we’re being a bit over-critical, but we’ve seen some truly excellent motherboards come through the door recently.

We’ll try the test at Fastest to garner an idea of total throughput and then at Quality to represent something that a72v66-e actual playing resolutions. We’ve not seen this before, presumably it ensures compatibility with the different processors. Once again, the impression of quality is evident here. Asus also show the relative running speed of the PCI bus. By reading this site you agree to our cookie policy.

Again, we see the Asus trailing the MSI at stock speeds but managing to overtake it when ‘clocked to the limit. Let’s move onto another area of media encoding that has historically been heavily reliant on memory throughput, namely DVD encoding.

Asus have worked hard to gain this enviable reputation, work that has seen them leap to become to 1 manufacturer of PC motherboards world-wide. We’re running the Valley of the Jaguar Timedemo included in the publicly available demo. We tried to asue the limit of the motherboard by using a factory-unlocked 1.

BIOS duty is handled by Award. This synthetic benchmark stresses the CPU, memory sub-system and graphics card to the limit. Pifast calculates the constant Pi to X million decimal places using the fastest method possible. We found it difficult to tell the difference between this and our Sonic Fury, praise indeed for the on-board solution. Let’s have a look at the specification in a little more detail.

It’s well presented, has a multitude of features and is a champion in the stability stakes.
