The only reason why we did not go higher is because of the CPU and the cooling. Instead, only marked soldering spots are found. This will just confuse the already confused consumer. The vcore can be increased to 1. The reason for this is the lower multiplier of the 2. The fact is that the price reflects how well the boards are equipped and in this case you have to live with the pretty high price tag.

As a conclusion we can say: ABIT never stops to surprise.

If not for the users, do it for the reviewers sake at least. All these are built on i7-e same solid platform and the only differences are how much integrated features the cards have been equipped with. The mainboard layout is comprehensively good on the IS7 cards, but unfortunately, small design flaws make themselves heard.

Finally, the AGP voltage can be raised to 1.

ABIT IS7-E – motherboard – ATX – Socket – iPE Overview – CNET

During our tests we used a resolution of xx32bit and an update frequency of 90Hz. Comanche 4 Demo Benchmark xx32bit.

We have also had abt with some overclocking tests of course. The first source of irritation is the 12V connector, which many manufacturers still persist in mounting behind the CPU socket, right alongside the back plate.


MP3 encodning Fraunhofer II codec. For the DFI-board is looks darker though. The IDE sund are angled laterally. Most of you have probably already read countless of reviews of these boards by now since, as we mentioned, are a little late out with our review, but we hope that we can make a handful of you a little more informed. Then we have the price question left and if we look at the prices of today on these boards they are simply hard to compete with. The placement of these are, however, identical, namely in the very back of the card near the back plate.

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

UT Demo v xx32bit Botmatch. The effect of this in FPS has of course been reviewed. Apart from that the IS7-G is a star in terms of connection abilities.

Even in MP3-encoding the brute force of Processor power and memorybandwidth is what is important for performance but this time something very inexpected happens. In 3DMarkthings start to look like normal again. Not an easy choice on what card one should choose. Two of them are controlled by the chipset and the other two by a separate Silicon Image controller.

When the concept was first introduced, I was rather skeptical for a start. I this test group these differences in frequency abiy slim to none so no board get any noticeable advantage over another. The Canterwood boards id7-e greater bandwidth and therefore they surpass the other boards.

This will just confuse the already confused consumer. With the bracket we can connect up to 6 USB-units and three Firewire units. The performed tests are as follow:. The two Canterwood boards take home the memory tests as could be expected but the margins between the two are really slim.

With the IS7 series they take the whole thing one step further and again they raise the bar a bit over the competitors. Many of the springdale based boards on the market have trouble with aggressive memory settings.

Auto, Turbo, Street Racer and F1 are the available settings. Outputs for the integrated sound circuit is of course included as well.
