Abit’s TH7II-RAID motherboard
This time, running at x, 32 bit colour with textures and quality on full. Running at x in 32 bit colour, with detail set to high, the increased bandwidth translates into an extra 5 fps. Building on their laurels after the success they achieved with that board, they have now introduced the TH7-II, for use with tj7ii PIV.
The audio ports for the on board AC’97 sound are also stacked three high, which in an increasingly common configuration. When running at MHz I can set the Rdram divider to either 3x giving mewhich is stock speed for PC memory, or change it to 4x which gives me PC They’ve included all the usual features, plus a few extras we’re not used to seeing; I’ll get to those a little later on.
Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic. Something else that will appeal to overclockers, is the addition of micro strips on the back of the motherboard, underneath the mosfets and capacitors which are used for the supply of current to the CPU.
I have also benchmarked the board with two different settings, to test the performance of the Rdram when running at PC speeds.

It may lack things like USB2, 6 channel audio, etc, but it more than makes up for it in the stability and performance. The other bios features are fairly standard, there are no memory timing options on the board, as they are not required with Rambus. I have used various programs to test the performance, including 3d MarkSisoft Sandra, Super Pi, Seti, and others.
Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing The area around the socket is also clear from obstructions, and will allow for a substantial heat sink to be applied. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Board Features The TH7-II is a well specified board, and comes supplied with everything you could need to get it up and running. Firstly, Serious Sam, running the Karnack demo.
The i does not officially support this speed, that will not be implemented until the ie later on this year, but th7ik Abit board had no trouble running at that speed, which provides some future proofing in these fast moving times.
Intel Pentium IV 1.
Next I decided to try Quake 3, but this time using a higher resolution to see if the increased bandwidth still had an effect. When calculating 32 million decimal places of PI, with the CPU at and memory atit was just over 2 minutes faster, showing that the increased memory bandwidth does help in real world use. First, there are three stacked USB ports. Now for some games testing, as not everyone uses Seti and Pi, they want to know if it will help with games performance.
This was all set up, and then a clean install of Windows was done.

Even a quick glance reveals something a little unusual in the bottom left corner of the board. The options allowed vary depending on the type of CPU that you put into the board.
I ran a few more tests to see if the memory bandwidth was a limiting factor. This might look th7i impressive in artificial benchmarks, but how does it perform in the real world.

Three-high USB ports and a vertical audio port configuration. Motherboards Previous page Next page. These are very small strips which according to Abit increase the stability of the board when overclocking.
The four memory slots are positioned well away from the AGP port, so that when you have memory installed, the retaining clips do not foul on the back of the AGP th7ij, another thoughtful piece of design. This can be overcome with a modified bios that allows up to 1. Abit were one of the first motherboard manufacturers to make an i board available, the TH7.
I can’t imagine any heat sink having problems fitting in the expansive area Abit has left open.
