AOpen AX4C Max i875P Motherboard Review
AOpen AX4C Max i875P Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Cast aside the i850E chipset and RDRAM which have gone the way of the dodo, and the new king of the hill is clearly Intel's i875P chipset a.k.a. "Canterwood."

Benchmarks: Winbench 99, SiSoft Sandra 2003

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
AOpen AX4C Max Score Ranking
1a. Business Disk - 200/400 6610
1b. Business Disk - 217/434 6470
2a. High-End Disk - 200/400 23700


High-End Disk - 217/434 22300
3a. Business Graphics - 200/400 774
3c. Business Graphics - 217/434 816
4a. High-End Graphics - 200/400 1530
4b. High-End Graphics - 217/434 1650

Even though the PCI bus is still running 33 MHz, HDD performance drops when overclocked like usual. The graphics portion of Winbench 99 gets a decent boost from overclocking.

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 multimedia and CPU benchmarks aren't very surprising but it's nice to see the Canterwood does have more bandwidth available then the Springdale motherboards at stock speeds.
