Benchmarks: X2 The Threat, UT2003

X2: The Threat Source: Egosoft

A completely rewritten 3D engine based on DirectX8 encompasses many visual effects such as volumetric Nebulae (gas clouds) that have a real impact in the game (you can hide in them), many new engine, shield, weapon and explosion effects. Objects cast real dynamic 3D shadows! Dynamic DP3 bump mapping allows a previously unseen level of detail.

At stock speeds the Albatron PX875P Pro performs as expected, when the motherboard is overclocked it really starts to shine!

Unreal Tournament 2003

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2003 is the sequel to 1999's multiple 'Game of the Year' award winner. It uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology - where graphics, sound and game play are taken beyond the bleeding edge. Unreal Tournament 2003 employs the use of Vertex as well as Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 8 videocard to get the most out of the game.

UT2003 backs up what the other benchmarks say. Fast at stock and even better when overclocked!

Conclusions: i875 Canterwood on the slim

Other than the Albatron PX875P Pro that we've tested today, there is a real lack of high performance no frills motherboards to choose from.

If you're looking to build basic computers on the i875P platform, the benchmarks easily show you what you can expect from this board; good performance for money spent. Add to that the fact that the PX875P Pro is already Prescott ready. That will be good news to any IT manager contemplating Prescott when it launches mid Q1 '04.

As in life nothing is perfect, what complaints we do have on the PX875P Pro motherboard are fairly minor. My advice to enthusiasts who want to use this board to reach 300 MHz FSB is to replace the Northbridge cooler with some sort of active cooling - be that a fan blowing at the Northbridge, a third party chipset cooler, or perhaps something a little bit more extreme...

Ultimately I found the performance of the Albatron PX875P Pro motherboard to be very good, but that's not surprising considering it's based on the Intel i875P chipset.

The Albatron PX875P Pro was also a pretty good overclocker, and with a Pentium 4 3.0C in its socket, and low latency memory installed, it was able to reach 225 MHz. With a pair of OCZ PC3700 Gold DDR, the board reached even a little higher, hitting 230 MHz FSB.

If you're looking for an Intel motherboard for the most basic of tasks, or do not need any of the extra features, the Albatron PX875P Pro is one of the few boards that performs well, and can save you a bit of money to boot. This is the bread and butter of the motherboard world folks.
