Epox 4SDA+ SiS645 Socket 478 Motherboard

Epox 4SDA+ SiS645 Socket 478 Motherboard - PCSTATS
Abstract: Epox has always had an adventurous side as a company. That trait was evident in their recent AMD boards which gained so much attention.

Content Creation Winstone 2001 keeps multiple applications open at once and switches among those applications. Content Creation Winstone 2001's activities focus on what we call "hot spots," periods of activity that make your PC really work--the times where you're likely to see an hourglass or a progress bar.

Business Winstone is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running today's Windows-based 32-bit applications on Windows 98 ME, Windows NT 4.0 (SP6 or later), Windows 2000, Windows Me, or Windows XP which 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.

Motherboards WinStones Ranking
1. Content Creation - 4SDA+ 100 MHz 65.3
2 Content Creation - 4SDA+ 115 MHz 70.6
3. Content Creation - P4PA 100 MHz 62.9
4. Content Creation - 4D845A 100 MHz 62.3
1 Business Winstone - 4SDA+ 100 MHz 43.3
2. Business Winstone - 4SDA+ 115 MHz 49.1
3. Business Winstone - P4PA 100 MHz 45.3
4. Business Winstone - 4D845A 100 MHz 42.9

In the Winstone 2001 benchmarks, the 4SDA+ again performs at about the same level as the other Pentium 4 DDR boards. Still, any difference between the systems would not be noticable to the average user as it is past the user-limited threshold.

Winbench 99 V1.2 Source: e-Testinglabs.com

WinBench 99 is a subsystem-level benchmark that measures the performance of a PC's graphics, disk, and video subsystems in a Windows environment. WinBench 99's tests can run on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows Me systems.

WinBench 99 v1.2 Benchmark Results
Epox 4SDA+ Score Ranking
1. Business Disk - 100 MHz 6610
1a. Business Disk - 115 MHz 5930
2. High-End Disk - 100 MHz 15600
2a. High-End Disk - 115 MHz 14800
3. Business Graphics - 100 MHz 600
3a. Business Graphics - 115 MHz 679
4. High-End Graphics - 100 MHz 987
4a. High-End Graphics - 115 MHz 1075

It's common knowledge that the hard drive subsystem doesn't like to be overclocked and the performance tells you that. As for the AGP, it seems that the added AGP speed helps out, our graphics portion of the benchmark nets a healthy gain!

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system and individual components. The numbers taken though are again, purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance.

The P4 2 GHz teamed up with the EP-4SDA+ pulls numbers that are close to that of the reference Pentium 4 2 GHz in Sandra's data base. When viewing the memory, please keep in mind that at stock speeds, the DDR was running at 166 MHz. While overclocked, the DDR was only running 153 MHz. This was done because our test memory doesn't go high enough to enable the 3:5 memory divider.
