Asus P4G8X Deluxe with E7205 in the test: Dual-Channel DDR-SDRAM for Pentium 4

WinACE 2.11

  • Besides the probably most popular packing format * .zip, the * .ace format is certainly the most popular. It is created primarily by the graphically clear and quite nimble packer WinACE. In addition to the performance of the hard disk, the processing power of the CPU and again the interaction between memory and CPU also play an important role when encoding a packed file. In our test, it is important to compress a wave file (200MB) with WinACE 2.11 at the maximum compression level.

WinACE 2.11
Unit: minutes, seconds
    • Asus P4T533 - i850E
      2 : 49
    • Asus P4G8X -E7205
      3:12
    • Asus P4PE - i845PE
      3:30

Same bandwidth and yet 23 seconds difference? WinACE is still a top discipline for every Rambus system and the E7205 does not come close to this performance either, although it should be able to do so based on the technical data. The P4G8X with E7205 is again between the P4T533 with i850E and the P4PE with i845PE. But why is there such a staggered result? Has Intel perhaps put an extra hand on the bus timings and slowed them down so that the E7205 lags behind the i850E?

Magix Music Maker

  • About the audio encoding Not to be viewed too one-sidedly, the Magix Music Maker was used in this comparison test. Fortunately, the Pentium 4 offers full SS2 support. We have also chosen the 100 MB WAV file that was already used by Lame.

Magix MP3 Maker Platinum
Unit: points
    • Asus P4T533 - i850E
      59.58
    • Asus P4G8X - E7205
      58.55
    • Asus P4PE - i845PE
      58.47

The Magix Music Maker is only partially suitable for a mainboard test, but however, it also shows the graduation characteristic of the last benchmarks. However, the distance between the E7205 and i850E is slightly larger here than between the E7205 and i845PE.
