Impressive results from a stock-clocked Geforce 3 Ti If you’re looking for a solid, feature-laden motherboard, you can do considerably worse than the A7VE. One interesting thing to note is that Asus seem to over-supply actual voltage. Just a brief glimpse reveals that Asus have loaded the board with some rather nice goodies. MP3 encoding is something that I regularly do, anything that saves time in that process is most welcome. We found it difficult to tell the difference between this and our Sonic Fury, praise indeed for the on-board solution. And there you have it.

We’re somewhat under-whelmed by the performance of the Asus with the stock XP. On-board sound is having something of a renaissance of late.

Impressive results all-round Let’s pay a visit to page 1 of our benchmarker’s Bible and try the old favourite that is Quake 3. We weren’t surprised to see the board soldiering on even after extended abuse.

One seemingly annoying feature is the inability to manually turn off the RAID ports when booting. It also sports an upgraded South bridge which is now ATA compliant.

Another aspect to bear in mind is the relative running speeds of both systems when set at CPU defaults. We’re running the Valley of the Jaguar Timedemo included in the publicly available demo.

When set to 1. As part of our stability testing, we ran SETI. The Asus is almost unique in that it offers both jumper and jumper-free modes of operation. Let’s have a look at the specification in a little more detail. Impressive results from a stock-clocked Geforce 3 Ti Let’s have a look at the results.

We’ll try the test at Fastest to garner an idea of total throughput and then at Quality to represent something that mirrors actual playing resolutions. We’re looking at speeds greater than real-time here. Another observation we made was that the board takes a while to power up once the power switch is depressed, longer than any other board we’ve had in the labs. Perhaps we’re being a bit over-critical, but we’ve seen some truly excellent motherboards come through the door recently.

Using slightly stricter settings resulted in failed boot-ups. Asus have always impressed me asks their presentation and the A7VE is no different. Although preferable for overclockers, it certainly puts an emphasis on good cooling.
