- Intel Application Accelerator v2.3
- ABIT IC7-G BIOS "15"
All testing was done on a fresh install of Windows XP Professional build 2600 with Service Pack 1A. All benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running. No overclocking was done on the video card. Nvidia 43.45 drivers were used on all motherboards for this review. Our testing processor was an unlocked Intel Pentium 4 3.0C. Our default testing was done at 200×15 = 3.0GHz. We did disable the audio and firewire features found in the BIOS menu.
Now that you have the basic understanding of all the general test set-up, let’s move on to the Testing!
Results: It is really obvious that agressive memory timings paired with ABIT’s "Game Acceleration Technology" is the way to go when looking for peak performance. We found a fairly large performance increase by just tweaking the memory settings via ABIT’s SoftMenu BIOS. The pair of 256mb Corsair XMS 3500 modules provided very close results even though they offer half the capicty of the pair of 512mb Kingston HyperX 3500 modules.
Now that I have seen the results, we will look at overclocking and sum up my overall impression of our Kingston HyperX module!
