Intel G chipset iG northbridge and ICH6 southbridge It’s quite an inexpensive model supporting DDR which automatically reduces the overall price of the system with excellent functionality and good overclocking potential — these mainboards are probably doomed to maximum demand in the period of migrating to new technologies. There is also an IrDA header, as well a as a three-pin power connection for a front system intake fan. Much like what we often see from the likes of Gigabyte in the past, and ABIT as of recent times, Albatron has chosen to include a fold-out, color installation guide. All that need to be done is mount the 12V ATX connector so the bottom four pins are left unconnected. 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. 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. Refer to our large comparisons for the complete analysis.

The peripherals menu houses all of the options to control enabling or disabling integrated devices such as LAN, Audio, Serial Ports, Parallel Ports, and on the occasion the kitchen sink as well. This is the first three-phase power solution that we have seen so far for any of the LGA motherboards.
The motherboard supports all current Socket Pentium 4 processors, but even though it is based on xlbatron Intel iG chipset, it still uses regular DDR memory.

The PXG Pro follows in line with previous Albatron Northbridge coolers, given that they have albqtron been passive albateon. FR passband ripple from 40 Hz to 15 kHzdB: This window shows off the various temperature readings given by the motherboard, as well as fan RPM and voltage readings.
Unlike other synthetic benchmarks which rely on additional components within a computer system like the hard drive, PriBench does not rely on any of these exterior devices for the tests. 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.
Albatron PX915G – motherboard – ATX – LGA775 Socket – i915G
The next item that we found was yet another feature that we like to see included with motherboards, that being a large sticker albafron a layout of the board. The Southbridge portion of the motherboard is a little on the cluttered side, though due to the lack of any additive components for the PXG Albatgon, this area is far cleaner than some of the boards we have dealt lx915g thus far.
The last benchmark for the day, Unreal Tournamentshows us some very interesting results. PriBench is a system level benchmark, solely utilizing the performance of the processor and memory subsystem. Our first experience with an Albatron motherboard was a good one, and came a few months back with their high-end iP model, the PXP 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. Virtually every item that we look for as far as determining design quality goes, Albatron has successfully implemented into the PXG Pro. The area around both of these chips is px915v, each having its own 25MHz clock crystal.
Albatron PXG Pro – Mainboard Based on Intel G Chipset
With no airflow to go over the Northbridge other than hot air being expelled from the CPU heatsink, this heatsink is overworked. Video 3Digests Video cards: Albstron was initially expecting your general motherboard product package, with an expansion bracket here and there, but nothing of real substance besides the cabling and other must have components.
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.
The Advanced Chipset Features submenu houses all of px915v important memory timing options. This guide has a large portrayal of the motherboard on the front cover with all of the vital components and connectors labeled.
Next in line for our benchmarking results, we find ScienceMark 2. This heating problem will certainly affect overclocking capabilities no doubt, especially with Albatron pressing the fact that upping the Northbridge voltage can help overclocking. As the analogy goes, a warm heatsink is a working heatsink, but a hot heatsink is an overworked heatsink.
Using our very own in-house px915y, MBReview PriBench uses a computationally intensive algorithm to compute several hundred millions of prime integers.
This is a gorgeous benchmark and can place some serious strain on any system. These two boards could battle back and forth for the remaining benchmarks, but I suspect the PXG Pro will come out on top most.
This board offers up all that albxtron needed for the market it is targeted at, though I wish Albatron would include some extra items in with their packaging. This sticker can be affixed to the interior of the case, and is easily accessible if needed. The majority of the components in this area of the PCB are, as always, located along the rear edge of the motherboard. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: 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.
To start things off, we have the various documentation items for the PXG Pro. The ALC albtaron full 7. Located in the block below these items relating to frequency settings, we find all px915f the voltage adjustments that Albatron has made available. This greatly helps airflow into the case, and over the graphics card, RAM, and processor.
