The cpu speed has almost zero impact. Intel seemed to get it right the first time every time. Test hardware I am going to be testing this mobo with the following hardware. With Intel, once you get an OS that has built-in support for a chipset, you’re good to go and don’t have to deal with installing the drivers yourself. In addition to the supported settings are a few “just-for-fun” options, including the 75, 83, Turbo Frequency , and MHz bus speeds. I’ve run some tests already on this mobo.

I have a manual for the P2B-DS 1. My website with reviews, demos, drivers, tutorials and more My future testing threads will be about “general testing” for a component, and also include as much general info as I can acquire. Unfortunately, neither of these jumpers are mentioned in the manual available on the Asus website, because that manual is for mobo PCB revision 1.

Now, I get no distortion when I play that dance. The cpu speed chjpset almost asuus impact.

ASUS P2B – motherboard – ATX – Slot 1 – i440BX

What is there to gain or lose, other than that particular issue you raise by installing it? I want to cover as much ground as possible. The way it is, even when Ssus read your post, I can’t decide what info is important and what is not, cause I have no clue as to what you are getting at in the long run.


The Test Index The Test. With Cyipset, once you get an OS that has built-in support for a chipset, you’re good to go and don’t have to deal with installing the drivers yourself.

Host Bus Fast Data Ready: ASUS is at it again, this time armed with the full power and potential of the BX chipset as well as a few unofficially supported yet documented bus speed settings on the new P2B. So from P3 onwards mainboards don’t have cache chips anymore It’s when the OS is older than your chipset that you have aeus seek out the drivers to make it fully functional.

Intel seemed to get it right the first time every time. What a shame because with the L2 turbo Slot boards would be awesome for my tasks I looked at the Speedsys charts for my Super Socket 7 board and it just shows you how slow the mainboard L2 cache is compared to the onchip cache.

Sticking to the more conventional and sometimes more reliable Jumper-Driven configuration, the P2B’s setup is almost identical to that of the old KNX. Video Memory Cache Mode: My mediafire uploads Link to the latest beta bios, version Users browsing this forum: Cyipset sound card for the overclocked PCI bus test is in row 3.


Of course it really never got perfect because the hardware was just not entirely functional.

I don’t think you need to bother with BX chipset drivers unless it’s Windows This effect can sometimes be undesirable, and means that the FSB chipseh not be overclocked in this manner to ensure that the PCI card s function correctly. This site hosts no abandonware. Hey retro gamesI finally figured out why P3 systems are so slow when you disable the L1 cache!

The consequence is, that I abort reading after a few lines. Occasionally, the sound sounded distorted, although this may be due to my cheap headphones. With the clock multipliers and bus speed settings documented on the motherboard, the well-written ASUS User’s Manual isn’t even necessary for the basic setup of the motherboard.

The P2B supports clock multipliers ranging from 2. I’ve run some tests already on this mobo. Link to an interesting webpage, where this P2B owner has modified the mobo.

The current revision of the P2B made no indication of a MHz bus speed, which isn’t a big loss since making use of a MHz bus speed setting requires sub -8ns PC SDRAM, realistically 6ns modules are needed for the most stable operation at that speed.
