Motherboard: Albatron PX875P PRO Review :: Performance Charts

This review marks the inauguration of our new test system configuration. While the old test rig is still a viable Pentium 4 system in many respects, we felt it was necessary to update the test system for 2004. As to how long it'll last as our test rig, that's not up to me. A Pentium 4 3.2 GHz Northwood is one of the fastest available Intel desktop CPUs. The other components are similar to our Athlon 64 test rig and the benchmarks are also the same.

One other thing to note, for the first time all of Motherboards.org test systems are based upon ATI cards, the 9700 Pro. While this card may be old, by today's standards of the RADEON 9800XT and the upcoming next generation, it still is the standard by which DirectX 9.0 based video cards are compared to. Once we move to our 925 series test platform the card used will likely change to whatever is the fastest PCI-Express card out there, but that is a bit in the future.
