The Granite Bay chipset should find itself used either as a high end workstation being utilised for CAD or 3D modelling or as an extreme gaming machine. The only feature missing is IDE raid which would have made the board complete. At x and above, The E and iPE boards take the lead. A setting of 64 is actually rather conservative, but it can give your system a little extra pep. There are 3 connectors for adjustable connection of fans.

Intel’s E7205: Granite Bay Hits the Streets

That is to say, the pin ATX power connector is strategically placed to avoid blocking airflow around the Socket interface. Doubt you’ll ever use this eeluxe it does come in handy when the need arises.

This board is absolutely laden with features as we shall find out shortly The onboard audio is similarly designed. System Setup Intel Pentium 4 3. Conclusions In conclusion, Asus have produced yet another great motherboard for the current socket Pentium 4.

BioShock Infinite and Metro: The Granite Bay promises to deliver a very high performance solution for the Intel Pentium 4 platform and it’s targeted at the workstation market. Start at 64 and slowly move up in increments of 10 saving and rebooting in between.


In its ideal environment it probably excels.

Installed board onto main board tray using ten spacers and screws. Adjustment can be carried out with: We have got the board of the Gold series. However, the market has called out for DDR memory, and at long last Intel has been pressured to listen.

Intel has implemented such a design, hoping to maximize performance.

Granite Bay can accommodate up to 4GB of memory, which contributes to its workstation-centric typecast. Since graphics data tends to have very strong locality, this increases the throughput of the bus and unloads the processor to some extent. Testing It is all very well producing theoretical tests to demonstrate performance.

Even better, the overclocked platform demonstrated an impressive 3. Even at Mhz FSB we did not need to reduce the ram timings.

Kortet har ellers innebygget funksjonalitet som: The third module would simply be ignored in dual-channel mode. Their functions are shown on the textolite. The benchmarks were all carried out using the same core components and each test was run twice to ensure accuracy.

With a more flexible processor, you might even be able to wring faster front side bus settings from the board — we were admittedly limited by our 3GHz sample.

Like the other products based on this chipset, this board has an excellent set of functions and numerous components; besides, ASUSTeK added a possibility of fine tweaking and overclocking from BIOS.

Please visit HWZ for the latest reviews and news. No more DOS-based flash utility and bootable diskette required.

We installed a Pentium 4 2. Interested in this stuff? Plenty of settings for tweaking memory timings. Therefore, the E is really targeted to the power users and gamers too. The P4G8X peaks at 3.

These two chips will tell you in a sweet audible voice if there’s something not normal about your setup. While certainly a nice feature, all current onboard Serial ATA implementations use the PCI bus, which translates into limited bandwidth.
