DFI NT72-SA i850E Motherboard Review

DFI NT72-SA i850E Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: With Intel dropping support for RDRAM and adopting dual channel DDR for the Pentium 4, it's obvious that RDRAM will be soon be taking a less important role in the P4 mainboard markets.

Benchmarks: 3DMark 2001, QIII Arena

3DMark2001 SE Source: MadOnion

3DMark2001 SE is the latest installment in the 3DMark series by MadOnion. By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001 SE has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders, Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping, support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests using Ipion real-time physics. Higher 3DMark scores denote better performance.

3DMark2001 SE Benchmark Results
Processor 3DMarks Ranking
1. GNB MAX Dual DDR - 133/266 15520
2. NT72-SA - 133/1066 15440
3. NT72-SA - 140/1120 15692

Here the systems all score about the same. At stock the NT72-SA is just a tad slower then the Granite Bay but when overclocked it's faster.

Quake III Arena

Source: ID Software

Quake III Arena is a First Person Shooter (FPS) that revolutionized gaming as we know it. Using multiple light sources and having graphics textures that can fill videocards, even after 3 years it's still able to bring a cutting edge system to its knees.

Quake III Arena Fastest demo001 (SYSTEM)
Processor FPS Ranking
1. GNB MAX Dual DDR - 133/266 416.9
2. NT72-SA - 133/1066 410.3
3. NT72-SA - 140/1120 423.6

Quake III Arena Fastest nv15demo (CPU STRESS)
Processor FPS Ranking
1. GNB MAX Dual DDR - 133/266 112.3
2. NT72-SA - 133/1066 111.5
3. NT72-SA - 140/1120 114.5

Like we saw in the other benchmarks, at stock speeds it seems that the RDRAM based system is just a bit slower then Dual DDR...
