In order to remove any sort of graphics bottleneck from our results, we chose to go with the standard x resolution for our tests. Finally, we have the manuals. The PXG Pro posts a hairline lead for latency time, though both boards come in with matched cycles. This cooler managed to get a little more than hot during normal system operation, even under open case, low ambient temperature situations. I still prefer to see this located farther up the PCB for airflow purposes, though with the slim size of the cable this implementation works nicely as well. To the left of the heatsink, we find both of the yellow USB 2. This BIOS setup is also common on Intel brand motherboards, which are, of course, geared more towards the mid-range consumer than an enthusiast.

By increasing the number of phases, the processor can obtain a cleaner and steadier voltage, providing for solid power delivery.
Albatron PX915G Pro – motherboard – ATX – LGA775 Socket – i915G
Located right below the Marvell chip, we next come aobatron the second Ethernet controller chip, this time manufactured by VIA.
Albatron offers up superior documentation with all of their products, but sometimes the package can be lacking, i.
I still prefer to see this located farther up the PCB for airflow purposes, though with the slim size of the cable this implementation works nicely as well. This is a gorgeous benchmark and can place some serious strain on any system.
Beginners Guides Cases and Access. The 3-phase switching voltage regulator of the processor incorporates four uF capacitors and ten uF capacitors. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: The mainboard also contains voltage regulators for PCIE 16x four uF capacitors and aalbatron six uF capacitors, reinforced by inductors. FR passband ripple from 40 Hz to 15 kHzdB: The PXG Pro also requires a high Northbridge voltage to attain high-end overclocking speeds, something that will only add serious heat to your system, and at 65C, lower the lifespan of your system should it be run under stressful situations.
This portion of the BIOS will certainly be home to the overclocker and performance enthusiast. Located in the block below these items albxtron to frequency settings, we find xp915g of the voltage adjustments that Albatron has made available.
Albatron PXG Pro – Mainboard Based on Intel G Chipset
As the analogy goes, a warm heatsink is a working heatsink, but a hot heatsink is an overworked heatsink. The area around both of these chips is clean, each having its own 25MHz clock crystal. The motherboard supports all current Socket Pentium 4 processors, but even though it is based on the Intel iG chipset, it still uses regular DDR memory.
The PXG Pro posts a hairline lead for latency time, though both boards come in with matched cycles. The Advanced Chipset Features submenu houses all of the important memory timing options.
Albatron has been able to implement a solid three-phase power solution for the PXG Pro with high quality, ultra-low ESR capacitors, as well as high quality control components from Analog Devices. For now, it looks to be a solid board worthy of any use; it just might fall short on requirements for overclockers and performance gurus. The next item that we found was yet another feature that we like to see included with motherboards, that being a large sticker featuring a layout of the board.
albqtron Because of its shared architecture, it is open to issues where just one peripheral sucks up all the bandwidth, leaving little to none for other system devices. Finally, we come across the DIMM slots.
Albatron PX915G – motherboard – ATX – LGA775 Socket – i915G
This three-pin connection is located along the top edge of the x16 PCI-Express slot, whereas the four-pin connector is closer to the processor socket. Noise level, dB A: The Socket T is oriented lengthwise from East to West across the motherboard.
This window shows off the various temperature readings given by the motherboard, as well as fan RPM and voltage readings. Virtually every item that we look for as far as determining design quality goes, Albatron has successfully implemented into the PXG Pro. Access to the only jumper may be hampered when the mainboard is in a case, there in no brief description of jumper functions on the PCB. It’s a community-based project which helps to repair anything.
The downsides though, fall under overclocking and BIOS tweaks. Dynamic range, dB A:
