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

Audio Analyzer

  • The audio analyzer tests sound chips for their quality. The line-out and line-in of the sound card are connected by a loop-through cable so that the 'audio analyzer' can compare the transmitted and recorded signal directly with a reference value. Version 4.3 was used in this test.

Model overall result Asus P4G8X Good [color = red] Detailed result Asus P4PE Poor Detailed Result Asus P4T533 average Detailed result

The P4G8X Deluxe clearly delivers the best onboard sound of all three tested boards and canstill achieve a 'good' on average. For the other two representatives, as in their own reviews, it looks a bit darker. With the P4G8X, Asus has again relied on the Realtek ALC650 codec, which has performed best in all of our tests so far.

Audio Winbench 99

  • The code number may be '99 'indicate an outdated benchmark. But the program is still doing its job today. The Audio Winbench measures the load on the main processor for various sound qualities. The result is a guarantee for the quality of the onboard codec. These often do their job rather poorly than right and are an imposition for any processor, especially on slower PCs.

The P4PE and P4T533 again show the bad results that we had to record in our reviews back then. The P4G8X Deluxe, on the other hand, relies once again on the well-known ALC650 codec from Realtek, which has always shone with a low CPU load and also has good sound quality.
