Magic-Pro MP-P6PE-1000 i865PE Motherboard Review

Magic-Pro MP-P6PE-1000 i865PE Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The board has native Serial ATA support (then again all i865 and i875P based motherboards do as well), onboard 3Com 10/100 LAN and a 5.1 soundcard.

* - The Pentium 4 2.8 GHz uses a 133 MHz FSB and was run on an i845PE and E7205 motherboard for performance reference.

** - HyperThreading was enabled and running for all the tests.

*** - With the P4 3C running 235 MHz FSB, memory was running with the 5/4 memory divider.

SysMark2002 is more of an extension of SysMark2001 rather then a whole new benchmark. The applications used during testing have been updated and most importantly for AMD users, the new SysMark2002 uses the Windows Media Encoder 7.1 which supports the AthlonXP's SSE instructions.

8. Pentium 4 3.0C/Magic-Pro i865PE (235/376) 273

As you can see according to SysMark2002, an i865PE board is an i865PE motherboard. Stock performance of all the motherboards is very good.

Content Creation Winstone 2002 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running top, Windows-based, 32-bit, content creation applications on Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows Me, or Windows XP.

Business Winstone 2002 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running today's top-selling Windows-based 32-bit applications on Windows 98, Windows 2000 (SP6 or later), Windows Me, or Windows XP. Business Winstone doesn't mimic what these packages do; it runs real applications through a series of scripted activities and uses the time a PC takes to complete those activities to produce its performance scores.

8. Pentium 4 3.0C/Magic-Pro i865PE (235/376) 36.5

Like SysMark2002 shows, the Magic-Pro P6PE-1000 is getting off to a great start. Performance is as good as other i865PE boards at stock and gives a healthy performance boost.
