The Soyo P4S 645DX Dragon was a rather impressive board on the eye and the same applied to the tests we performed on it compared to the I845G. If you're looking for a board not so much for hardcore overclocking but one its share of features and moderate speed, this board is second to none.
Performance was at a superb high, showing that Soyo have squeezed the speeds out of the improved 645DX chipset from SiS, making it a true Intel alternative.
Compatibility wise, we had a few hitches with the 961 Southbridge not liking our Maxtor hard disk - Swapping it out for a Seagate, IBM or Western Digital all worked fine.
Overclocking wise, the board has plenty of features for this, but lacks the stability to go anywhere with them. When doing our tests this board would crash out at rather slow speeds compared to many other boards we have tested - The Northwood voltage issue needs to be addressed with this board, as setting the Vcore above 1.75v caused this board to stall at post on us forcing us to revise our settings.
- DDR-333 Support
- USB 2.0 Support
- Highpoint Raid
- Uses older 961 Southbridge instead of 961B or 962.
Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
