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

3DMark 2000

  • Judging by its release in 1999, the benchmark has long been a thing of the past and when it comes to evaluating a current graphics card, this is definitely the case. Since current cards of the GeForce 3/4 or Radeon 8500/9700 caliber no longer have any problems with the display of the individual sequences, the processor, chipset and memory in particular come into their own. In other words, exactly the components that interest us most in the context of a mainboard test. A component of 3DMark 2000, the CPUMark , puts this interaction particularly at the center. Here the CPU calculates two game scenes 'in software', so it has to do without the hardware acceleration of the graphics card.

The BG7 is also able to convince in 3DMark 2000 and is once again right at the front of the DDR333 boards in the lowest resolution. In the default run, however, almost all DDR333-equipped boards have to be defeated.

With the currently very appropriate rating of 666 points, the BG7 also scores very well in the CPU mark and is also ahead of the other DDR333 mainboards here.
