ASUS P5AD2-E Premium - 925XE done right first time - Benchmarks - Half Life 2

Today we take a look at the first retail Intel 925XE based motherboard to hit our labs and it comes from ASUS. The newest Pentium 4 chipset from Intel increases FSB to 1066MHz and removes ECC memory support. The ASUS P5AD2-E Premium motherboard provides a stack of features but how does it perform against the Intel reference board? Read on as we investigate this 925XE retail board and what it's all about.

By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original, and adding startling new realism and responsiveness, Half-Life 2 opens the door to a world where the player's presence affects everything around him, from the physical environment to the behaviours even the emotions of both friends and enemies.

 

We benchmark Half Life 2 with our own custom timedemos as to avoid possible driver optimizations using the "record demo_name" command and loading the timedemo with the "timedemo demo_name" command - For a full list of the commands, click here.

 

 

Half Life 2 benefits from any optimisations and the Hyper Path along with the extra bandwidth that DDR-2 produces at 266FSB does give it an edge.
