Soyo P4S Dragon Ultra Plus Motherboard Review

Soyo P4S Dragon Ultra Plus Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Around back we see a typical colour coded set of IO ports with two big exceptions - the USB ports are in a different location and there is an onboard RJ-45 Ethernet jack.

Benchmarks: SPECviewPerf, POVRay

SPECviewPerf 6.1.2 Source: SPEC.org

SPECviewperf™ is a portable OpenGL performance benchmark program written in C. It was developed by IBM. Later updates and significant contributions were made by SGI, Digital and other SPECopcSM project group members. SPECviewperf provides a vast amount of flexibility in benchmarking OpenGL performance. Currently, the program runs on most implementations of UNIX, Windows NT, Windows 95/98 and Linux.

SPECviewperf 6.1.2 Benchmark Results
Procssor / Test Score Ranking


1. Pentium 4 2 GHz 8.085
2. Pentium 4 2.16GHz 8.972


1. Pentium 4 2 GHz 14.97
2. Pentium 4 2.16GHz 18.13


1. Pentium 4 2 GHz 26.99
2. Pentium 4 2.16GHz 31.56

Yet again we can see that increasing MHz to 2.16GHz results in faster scores in these processor intensive tests. The AMD AthlonXP 2000+ tested better here however.

POVRay Source: POVRay.org

The Persistence of Vision Ray Tracer (POV-Ray) is an all round excellent package, but there are two things that particularly make it stand out above the rest of the crowd. Firstly, it's free, and secondly, the source is distributed so you can compile it on virtually any platform.

Lower numbers denote faster calculation times (seconds), and hence, better performance.

POVRay Benchmark Results (lower is better)
Processor seconds Ranking
1. Pentium 4 2 GHz 304 sec
2. Pentium 4 2.16GHz 281 sec

With no special instructions for either CPU, the Pentium 4 produces good, but not especially amazing results in POVray. Knowing AMD's history with number crunching this is not very surprising to see, but still we can see some improvement with the P4 when the FSB is increased.
