Intel D850GB P4 Motherboard Review

Intel D850GB P4 Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Intel are known more for their line of incredibly successful processors than their motherboards, but if the D850GB is any indication, they can definitely hold their own...

Benchmark Systems Configuration

Test System Specs:
Computer System No.1: Intel Pentium 4 1.7GHz processor
Intel D850GB P4 Motherboard
VisonTek Geforce 3
256MB Samsung PC800 RDRAM
60GB Samsung HDD, 5400RPM
Computer System No.2: Intel Pentium 4 1.7GHz processor
MSI 850Pro2 P4 Motherboard
VisonTek Geforce 3
256MB Samsung PC800 RDRAM
60GB Samsung HDD, 5400RPM
Software: Windows 2000, SP1
DirectX 8.1 Beta
Detonator 12.90

SiSoft Sandra 2001 SE
e-Testinglabs Benchmark Suites
3DMark 2001

Driver installation was relatively easy. Intel supplies all the necessary updates on a CD-ROM that essentially installs itself. Called "Express Installer," the program restarted the machine a half dozen times as it progressed down a list of utilities available for installation.

Anyhow, with the machine setup our first round of benchmarks will start with MadOnion's 3DWinMark 2001, and then SiSoft's Sandra.

MadOnion 3DMark 2001

Motherboard: Setting: 3D Marks
MSI 850Pro2 17 x 100 4961
Intel D850GB 17 x 100 4969

In this case with 3DMark2001 we can see that the differences between the Intel D850GB, and MSI 850Pro2 offering initially appear to be very slight.

Sisoft Sandra: CPU Benchmark
Motherboard: Setting: ALU: FPU/SSE2:
MSI 850Pro2 17 x 100 MHz 3213 it/s 885/2095 it/s
Intel D850GB 17 x 100 MHz 3376 it/s 881/2099 it/s

This is the benchmark we've all been waiting for, and the P4 doesn't disappoint - at least against itself :-) With the 1.7GHz P4 operating at default clock speed it comes in at 3376 it/s for ALU, slightly above that of the 85Pro2. Overall the increase in performance over the MSI wasn't something we were expecting to see.

Sisoft Sandra: Multimedia Benchmark
Motherboard: Setting: Integer: Floating point SSE2:
MSI 850Pro2 17 x 100 MHz 6795 it/s 8307 it/s
Intel D850GB 17 x 100MHz 6768 it/s 8276 it/s

Sisoft Sandra: Memory Bandwidth Benchmark
Motherboard: Setting: Int ALU: Float FPU:
MSI 850Pro2 17 x 100 MHz 1541 MB/s 1564 MB/s
Intel D850GB 17 x 100 MHz 1542 MB/s 1558 MB/s

Memory bandwidths stays pretty much constant across the two platforms as you would expect. Next up, benchmarks from e-Testinglabs to test out productivity.
