The Intel 975X platform offers a competitive gaming platform when compared to the NVIDIA nForce 4 Intel Edition SLI. The performance of the Asus P5N32-SLI Deluxe is still at the top in the benchmarks.

We are introducing Serious Sam II and Call of Duty II into our benchmark suite and will be adding more games in the near future. Our Half Life 2 benchmarks are revised demos written by our Jarred Walton. We have listed the minimum and maximum frame rates attained next to the product label where applicable.

We have added the Presler CPU scores to selective benchmarks to show the impact of this revised processor, 975X chipset, and Virtualization Technology. The CPU was run at 3.2GHz (16x200fsb) in order to match the 3.2GHz (16x200fsb) speed of the 840EE used in our standard test configuration. We will be reviewing the Presler and Cedar Mill product families in detail shortly.

    We used the OCZ Power Stream 520. It is our standard power supply for testing. I have listed in the overclocking setup but not in the regular test setup. I will add that line in the next article.

    Thank you.

    Cool quote from the man often referred to as the first US psychologist. The psychology building at Harvard, where he was a professor, is also named after him. And I'm pretty sure he got that honor without giving them a ton of money.

    Would a Chaintech AV710 satisfy your question? ;-> Reply

    I have some horrible 945G board (don't ask, I use a 7800GT lol), and I can't even run PC2-6400 over 667, nor will the computer not crash if I put the bus over 205. :(

    So when are the 975x boards supposed to come out? I see some of the Intel boxes listed now in froogle (not usually in stock though), but not from Gigabyte, Asus, or anyone else yet. :) I'd be happy if it is before the 21st (my birthday). This Asus board looks like it'll be exceedingly expensive, though.

    Boards featuring the 975X chipset should hit retail stores sometime this week. We'll see... Reply

    The 975x boards should be shipping in volume by the end of the year. We expect to see a small sampling of boards in the retail channel as early as next week but as always that could change. Reply

    I know the overclock testing was a bit much for a "workstation" board but it does give an indication to the quality of the components used on the board.
