Five i845E mainboards in the test: who will win?

3DMark 2001 SE

If there is currently a benchmark that repeatedly has to represent the performance of your own computer as the showcase program, then this is 3DMark 2001 SE. Certainly one of theMain reasons why it can be found in our benchmark course again this time.

And once again a new benchmark reveals a different order. If the IT7 still performs relatively poorly in the 'Default Run', it is suddenly the fastest board of our four new competitors in 640x480. One thing can be said now: every board has its qualities and our benchmarks will probably not result in a fixed sequence. The performance differences of the i845E mainboards are too small and the results in the respective tests too different. But the P4B533-E also confirmed its superiority in terms of performance in 3DMark 2001 and again took first place in both tests.
