Five i845E mainboards in the test: who will win?

Unreal Tournament

At first glance, the first-person shooter from Epic doesn't seem to be a contemporary benchmark candidate for a long time due to its somewhat outdated technology . With thatcalled 'UT Bench', a recording of a multiplayer match against a number of bots, was created an almost unsurpassable hurdle for CPU and thus board and memory, which provides a very clear picture of the mainboard performance.

Even if the differences in Unreal Tournament will turn out marginally as usual, but here's how the one order already known to us. In any case, almost at the end of our benchmarks, you can say that the P4B533-E probably delivers the best overall performance. But performance is not everything and so the price/performance ratio and the scope of delivery will probably tip the scales in our test.
