To get an idea on how this hybrid 875P/LGA-775 board performs, we are comparing it to several other Lanparty boards:
Lanparty PRO875B (Socket 478, 875P, DDR, AGP)
So we have basically every solution available for a P4 CPU. Two previous generation chipsets, a new mainstream chipset, and a new high end chipset. So at the same time, we're going to find out how these chipsets really stack up against each other!
Test systems consisted of:
LGA775 CPU: P4 550 (Prescott 3.4 GHz)
DDR2 Memory: Kingston DDR533
PCI-E Video Card: ATI Radeon X600XT (lowered memory clock to match that of 9600XT)
SiSoft Sandra 2004 SP2b
Now here's something I didn't expect! The 875P-T outperforms the 925X-T2! Actually so does the 915P board we tested! This tells us that the DDR2 we're using is actually quite slow (being an early generation product, it has super high latency timings).
PCMark 2004 takes various components of what we would do in day-to-day computing, and turns out a neat, comparable score. In the "System" suite, these are the tests that take place:
Many of these tests are 'pure CPU' tests, but one would expect the increase bus rate to increase performance a bit more than clock speed.
We tested the 'system score' as well as throwing in another memory test:
These tests were done before we had ZDMedia's latest benchmark suite. However the chipsets we're testing were current at the time Winstone 2004 were fresh, so no biggie ;)
Once again, the 875P-T2 is a killer performer! The 925X chipset is just not well suited for this 3.4 GHz CPU...
