EPOX 8K7A XP DRIVER

We’ve had the board for a little while but we’ve never been able to make the board work in asynchronous mode and detect any performance increase. To start viewing messages, select the forum that you want to visit from the selection below. Here’s a cropped screen grab from Sandra showing the effect that a MHz memory and host clock has. You may have to register before you can post: As you can see, running the memory bus at MHz and giving us the extra bandwidth shows us a slight but measureable performance increase. On a DDR system, matching memory clock to CPU host clock front side bus is ideal and latency can be as low as possible. I don’t know, I am not getting it untill wednesday.

They don’t make chipsets and can only work with what they are given. So while the board might seem low on features, it’s strengths lie elsewhere.

While the BIOS would tell us we were running asynchrously, none of our benchmarks would show us that was the case. The ATX case header is also properly labelled, something you don’t see on all boards and I was able to connect my case headers without having to refer to the manual which is a nice rarity.

AC’97 audio via the southbridge is also supported however I’m a fan of proper hardware solutions since I’ve found VIA southbridge provided solutions tend to degrade under high system load whereas a dedicated solution tends not to. On a DDR system, matching memory clock to CPU host clock front side bus is ideal and latency can be as low as possible.

Results 1 to 15 of I’ll skip the CPU Multimedia numbers except to say that there is a very small but detectable rise in the results when you go up to asynchronous mode. The numbers are very similar to results we’ve gotten with this CPU on a wide number of boards.

Multipliers can be lowered and given a proper process shrink, the CPU has some headroom left in it for a while before Hammer hits.

EPoX 8K7A & AMD XP 1600- Will it work?

You may have to register 8k7s you can post: It’s one of the most stable boards I’ve yet seen, something I maybe couldn’t say about EPoX in the past. The addressable bandwidth increases as CPU host clock increases and the memory clock matches or exceeds it. Onto the performance conclusion where we’ll also touch on some issues pertaining to the Athlon XP platform in general.

8k7aa issues with installation at all, as it should be. Nothing to look at there. It’s this graph that most people are going to see and think, “what’s the benefit of running DDR then? Please feel free to send money for upgrades.

The board overclocks like a champion, that’s all there is to it. DDR memory is happiest running at the same clock as the host bus front side bus so that wait states between epoxx two are minimised. It’s quite obvious sp Athlon XP could do with a front side bus hike to let it use more memory bandwidth. Onto Aquamark, our shader-heavy DirectX 8. Speed will increase by multiplier only. I’m not a fan of rotated sockets since I used to run water cooling and rotating the socket when moving motherboard meant rotating and repositioning the water block.

These are going to show the same numbers that any well sorted Socket A board will show for the same processor, in our case the XP Eplx. All times are GMT We’ve had the board for a little while but we’ve never been able to make the board work in asynchronous mode and detect any performance increase.

A 60 point gain I measured over points from some runs doesn’t seem like very much but it happens every time showing you that the memory bandwidth we have extra from KT is helping performance.

For a good time add SenorDestro to your and Steam friend list. You have eopx massive range of voltage options available to you without modification 2. The board uses a full 9-hole ATX mount and was an easy drop in replacement for the last board in the test chassis. Most focus on the chipset will be in the asynchronous memory mode where you run the board in Next up we have Quake3.

Layout is sensible despite with a couple of niggles that are mostly personal rotated socket and slightly goofy ATX power socket placement.

I haven’t read anything about O’c it.
