Asus P4T533-C and Intel D850EMV2 in the test: The new i850E with 533MHz FSB

SiSoft Sandra

As in our last reviews, we would like SiSoft Sandra to take the first step here and take a closer look at the theoretical streaming performance. The result does not always have to reflect the later grading in the benchmarks, but especially with the Pentium4 you get a first indication of the very important memory performance.

Of course, the PC1066 Rambus can really show off in this test from the fullest scoop. However, it is still far from the maximum possible 4.2 GB. The PC800 Rambus is already getting closer to its optimum, but, as you can see from the PC1066 data, it gives away some of the data transfer rate that the new Pentium4 allows with 533MHz.

WinACE 2.11

Als We use WinACE version 2.11 for another test for the memory interface. The systems had to pack a mix of already packed and unpacked files, music tracks, documents and pictures with a total of 390 MByte at maximum compression.

Both the Asus and the Intel board can benefit from the PC1066 with WinACE. In view of the high memory usage, this is not surprising either. Again, the Asus P4T533-C manages to place itself in front of the D850EMV2 from Intel.

Magix Music Maker

In Magix Music Maker 3.03, a 251MB wave file was converted into an MP3 to encode with 128kBit and high quality settings.

The lead with PC1066 Rambus the Magix Music Maker fails with 5 - 7.5%. The Asus P4T533-C is again slightly ahead of Intel's reference board.
