Five i845E mainboards in the test: who will win?

Five i845E mainboards in the test: who will win?

Cinebench 2000

This rather compact benchmark is based on the ray tracing program Cinema 4D and gives a good overview of the rendering properties of the CPU chipset Memory subsystems and was allowed toof course not missing in this test either.

In Cinebench the results were always pretty close, but this time the boards don't agree at all about who should win this benchmark. If the 845E Max2-BLR is still at the top in 4D shading, it suddenly finds itself again at the end of the field in OpenGL shading. It is difficult to identify a clear favorite, even if the GA-8IEXP from Gigabyte, at least in both parts of the benchmark, infor whom the graphics card does not have a chance, seems to be a bit ahead of the others due to its good CPU chipset system.
