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

Vulpine GLMark v1.1

The second OpenGL hurdle is also the Vulpine GLMark version 1.1 for our Pentium4 competitors. The boards were allowed to let off steam in both the lowest and very high settings and show what they're made of.

Vulpine GLMark v1.1
  • 640x480x16 - low:
    • P4T533-C - PC1066
      198.1
    • D850EMV2 - PC1066
      197,2
    • P4T533-C - PC800
      195.0
    • D850EMV2 - PC800
      194,6
  • 1024x768x32 - high:
    • P4T533-C - PC1066
      67,6
    • P4T533-C - PC800
      67.0
    • D850EMV2 -PC1066
      67.0
    • D850EMV2 - PC800
      66,8

The lead of the PC1066 variants in the Vulpine GLMark is not really worth mentioning. Even if you win three frames at least in the lowest settings, you can't really rate this as a head start, since nobody who has this hardware will play with such settings. For this reason, they are relatively insignificant.

Lightwave 7.0b

Before we turn to the DirectX results in the next section, let's take a detour into the rendering department and leave the Boards render two scenes from Lightwave 7.0b. Since our test only concerns Pentium4 boards, the special Pentium4 optimization of the software can be neglected.

Lightwave 7.0b
Unit: Seconds
  • Skullhead Newest:
    • P4T533-C - PC1066
      209,6
    • D850EMV2 - PC1066
      211,0
    • P4T533-C - PC800
      211,2
    • D850EMV2 - PC800
      211,6
  • Radiosity Reflecting Things:
    • P4T533-C - PC1066
      60.2
    • D850EMV2 - PC1066
      60,9
    • P4T533-C - PC800
      61.0
    • D850EMV2 - PC800
      62.1

Also the lead in the rendering test, Lightwave 7.0b, is modest. The longer the rendering takes, the greater the time advantage, of course, but in our opinion the PC800 Rambus is completely sufficient here as well.The lead of the PC1066 Rambus could only be of importance for customers who operate semi-professional rendering and render on an object over several days.
