ASUS P4B i845 Motherboard Review - Asus P4B - Page 6

Conclusion

 

ASUS has done a supurb job of introducing one of what we hope to be many affordable and compatible Intel Pentium4 solutions. While the use of PC133 SDRAM with the bandwidth hungry P4 CPU does show itself in the benchmarks, the extra 20-30% doesn't in my mind justify spending 60% more for Dual RDRAM modules and an i850 motherboard. ASUS has made the best of an affordable platform.

 

-Pros

 

Fast

 

No need for special P4 PSU

 

Affordable

 

- Cons

 

Doesn't support older 3.3v AGP cards

 

Soldered on BIOS chip

 

Rating - 8/10
