Bring it on.
Below lists the
system performance of the SY-TISU at a default 1.2GHz. and
overclocked at 1.47GHz.
We found the CPU
and Multimedia performance of the SY-TISU with the Tualatin
processor to be on par with an AMD Athlon of the same speed.
Once we kicked the bus speed up to 163MHz., the CPU and
Multimedia performance surged past all other CPU's on the
chart. The memory benchmarks were pretty respectable
as well, encroaching into DDR territory at 163MHz. FSB.
Now we'll move up
to the graphics-based benchmarks and see what this board is
3 Arena & 3DMark 2001
No Review Would Be
Complete Without It...
We ran our next
string of tests to see how the system performed with several
of today's more popular benchmark utilities. Our first
choice is the veteran OpenGL benchmark, Quake 3 (demo001) at
Running at a the
default bus speed, the SY-TISU based system hit the CPU
limit at 195FPS. Kicking the FSB up to 163MHz., we
were able to eke out an additional 6 FPS. Let's see
how our test system handles DirectX8 with MadOnion's 3DMark
Running the SY-TISU
at a default FSB of 133MHz., our test system put out a very
nice score of 5256, about 42 points less than the Intel
baseline. Once we tweaked the FSB to 163MHz., the
score jumped to an impressive score of 6245! That is a
performance gain of over 18.8%.
experience with the Soyo SY-TISU motherboard was nothing
short of excellent. This being the first of Soyo's
motherboards to incorporate the Intel "Tualatin" Pentium III
processor, we found its performance nothing short of superb.
When it comes to overclocking, this motherboard comes
equipped with the necessary tools to get the job done with
stability to boot. Everything about this motherboard
says quality, with excellent features and solid performance.
Anyone running a PIII looking to upgrade to a high-quality,
overclockable motherboard, look no further. The Soyo
SY-TISU is an excellent choice for the casual user as well
as the enthusiast looking for that board with a little
quality, features, performance, and stability, we give the
Soyo SY-TISU motherboard a Hot Hardware Heat Meter Rating of
