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

Magix Music Maker 3.03

  • The Magix Music Maker should be familiar to every user who has ever dealt with the plan to create their own pieces of music on the PC. The program offers an almost inexhaustible repertoire of tools and audio files for beginners. At this point we are only interested in the integrated MP3 encoder. This supports the instruction set extension SSE2 of the Pentium 4 and thus really gets going when contracting with such a CPU. A 251MB wave file has to be encoded in an MP3 with 128kBit and high quality settings. Extremely low latency times in particular play an extremely important role here, which is why Rambus storage has not yet been able to place itself at the top despite its gigantic bandwidth.

Although the BG7 ran with the timings 2-2-2-5 and the amount of RAM used has little influence on the result in Magix Music Maker, it suffers a small setback here for the first time and has to admit defeat to the competition. With an outstanding performance like the EP-4G4A +At the time with the i845G, the Abit BG7 unfortunately cannot serve here.

Cinema 4D XL7

  • Cinema 4D XL7 is one of the full-blown rendering programs a la 3D Studio Max. For Practically unaffordable for private users, it offers the professional endless possibilities in the worlds of 3D rendering and animation. Here, too, the interaction between processor, northbridge (chipset) and memory plays a major role. The OpenGL benchmark also provides a good overview of the AGP performance.
