If you can survive without Firewire the cheaper IS7-E board is a better choice. The two Canterwood boards take home the memory tests as is7/i7s be expected but the margins between the two are really slim.

However we understand //is7-g ABIT has to make a profit, and we really ought not to complain considering the outstanding price the IS7 and IS7-G are selling for in comparison to their competitor’s motherboards.

To sum it up, all the integrated features and the package is very good but not anything spectacular. A lot of the same positive and negative things can be applied to both motherboards.

Well, the prices for equally equipped Springdale boards are quite the same regardless what manufacturer we choose. The northbridge has been smeared with generic is/7is7 compound and the true enthusiast better remove the goo and spread on some Arctic Silver or similar instead.

Differences in this effective frequency can tilt the test scores a tad since a variance in the end /iz7-g the actual speed of the whole process. Then there’s the Vcore, which is available as high as 1.

My primary issue was that the connectors seemed to break easily if one was slightly incautious when removing a cable, although these apprehensions later turned out to be completely unwarranted.

What is multi core floating point speed? During our tests we used a resolution of xx32bit and an update frequency of 90Hz.

What is quad core mixed CPU speed? Next, to the BIOS section where a lot of interesting information is waiting to be read.

This is something that ABIT among a couple of other manufacturers have introduced recently, and to be truly honest it works flawlessly, especially together with rounded cables. FRA-User, 6 months ago.

These stability related problems were unfortunately present on both IS7-boards in the beginning.

The fastest timings are and the slowest are Just as we had expected. I’m thinking about getting a board instead. The first mistake is the IS7-G’s horizontally placed Primary and Secondary IDE connectors are simply unacceptable for any modern day computer case if you ever plan on using that first or second bay for your optical drive s.

All these are built on the same solid platform and the only differences are how much integrated features the cards have been equipped with. Finally, the AGP voltage can be raised to 1. I’ve played with memory settings for weeks, timings and voltages as well, reinstalled XPPro several times, updated BIOS, got all newest drivers and run out of ideas Coupled with a id7/is7. If you want to overclock, this is the first section you go to.
