With the standard settings the Canterwood-boards perform slightly better than the IS7-boards, which in itself is not anything surprising. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Voltage, fan status, and temperature monitoring. UT Demo v xx32bit Botmatch.

No more trying to read minute PCB writing or digging out the manual.
Especially these cheaper boards are very interesting since the marginal is very low. The capacitors are in line with the plastic cage of inhel socket, so if your cooling solution fits within its edges, there will be no complications. Overclocking cjipset as usual a healthy increase of both 3DMark points and an increase to the memory bandwhidth.
On a more serio If you feel a need for extra features you just add some money and buy a IS7-G. If we just had a little more DIMM voltage to play with, the board would have received a As you’ll see in the benchmarks, GAT made quite a bit of difference in performance, which raises the question: If it comes to the worst, you might have to fetch the Dremel and cut out a piece of the metal to make room for the fan.
TechBubbel Podcast — Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! Search For More Articles! Finally, the AGP voltage can be raised to 1. Things definitely looks dark for the Canterwoods in the Comanche 4 test, as the Springdale-boards are even faster using standard settings.

As benchmarks will show later in this review, this claim is very close to accurate. Print Version Of Article. As a conclusion we can say: Thus it comes as no surprise that both the reference boards, based on the Canterwood chipset are faster than the IS7-board. Increases memory and system-level performance by optimizing internal inttel paths.
Facilitates high-speed storage transfers and easy hard drive upgrades.
During our itel we used a resolution of xx32bit and an update frequency of 90Hz. With the standard settings the Canterwood-boards perform slightly better than the IS7-boards, which in itself is not anything surprising. It is not all that much faster though, at least not compared to the IC7-G.
