RED FOX Super Socket7 Motherboard Review
RED FOX Super Socket7 Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: A couple of years back, Intel had completely dropped support for the Socket 7 platform starting from the release of the Pentium II and Celeron processors. At the time, CPU manufacturers such as AMD, Cyrix (before being purchased by VIA), IDT (the Centaur division also owned by VIA), IBM and Rise remained on the Socket 7 bandwagon as they knew it was costly for the consumer moving to a Slot 1 solution.

System Spec's and Winstone

The following hardware configuration was used to put the board through the benchmarks

System Configuration

AMD K6-3 400
Red Fox AGP ALi Motherboard
96MB PC100 SDRAM (CAS-2) running
8.4GB Quantum Fireball CR (under DMA/33)

Winstone Performance

For this benchmark, Winstone 99 and Content Creation Winstone 2000 have been used to test the overall performance of the test bed setup. Winstone 99 (Business Winstone 99) v1.2 is used to test the overall business performance of the computer system by using applications such as MS Office 97, Lotus Smartsuite 97, etc. Content Creation Winstone 2000 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running today's Windows-based Internet content creation applications. The test focuses on top-selling Internet content creation applications.

Each test was run 3 times with the result being the average value of the 3 test runs. Higher numbers indicate better performance.

This board certainly performs well under the Business Winstone category as any other normal board should perform. The CCW scores though, were slightly lower than expected and was out of the normal range of other boards by 1 - 1.3 points. Considering that the applications tested under CCW are extremely disk intensive, the board could possibly have had a slight performance boost with the addition of an ATA/66 interface. Don't expect the CCW scores to go soaring with ATA/66 of course. We have seen in many reviews that as of now, drive technology is still a bit premature with today's drives to take full advantage of a 66MB/sec bandwidth.
