Abits BG7 with i845G and DDR333 in the test: Intel's i845G outside of the specifications

SiSoft Sandra

  • SiSoft Sandra provides information about the system in abundance and is also able to check the most important components of the PC for their speed. The so-called 'memory benchmark', which determines the interaction between memory, chipset and processor, proves to be particularly useful. So it is not just a matter of the memory clock and the maximum memory bandwidth. Since all data is also sent via the processor, northbridge and frontside bus play an equally important role. For example, DDR333 with a bandwidth of 2700MB/s in this test will not exceed its transfer rate of 2100MB/s with a front-side bus of 133MHz, such as the AMD Athlon has.

In SiSoft Sandra Thanks to DDR333, the BG7 performs very well and delivers the highest performance of our mainboards in combination with DDR333. On the one hand, it surpasses the EP-4G4A +, which is also equipped with an i845G, but it also leaves the P4X400, SiS648 and i845PE behind with the same configuration.

WinACE 2.11

  • In addition to the probably most popular pack format * .zip, the * .ace format is certainly the most popular. It is primarily created by thegraphically clear and quite nimble packer WinACE. In addition to the performance of the hard disk, the interaction between memory and CPU also plays an important role when encoding a packed file. In our test, it is important to use WinACE 2.11 to compress a colorful mix of image and audio files (totaling 390MB) at the maximum compression level.

Also under WinACE Abit's BG7 does very well and is once again ahead of the DDR333 competition. But you should also note that the other mainboards allow a much more problem-free DDR333 operation than the BG7, since the DDR333 operation on the BG7 only works properly with a single-sided module in DIMM3.
