Recensita su VRzone la scheda madre Epox 8RDA+ dotata del più performante chipset per processori AMD, ovvero l'nForce2 di nVidia.Conclusion Board features & Pricing EPoX 8RDA+ board sports a usual green PCB typical of EPoX AMD based boards packaged in a nicely designed box. The features on the board is includes 4 USB 2.0 ports (2 onboard + 2 optional), Realtek ALC650 6 Channel Audio, onboard LAN, Firewire, SPDIF etc. EPoX should add in an additional LAN port since the MCP-T can support it. EPoX 8RDA+ is quite good featured board that give what an overclocker would need and there are no fancy items bundled that add up to the cost therefore it is priced very affordable at around US$132. BIOS & Overclockability EPoX 8RDA+ provides a powerful set of BIOS settings for overclocking and performance tweaking. The BIOS allows FSB adjustment from 100-250Mhz in 1Mhz intervals, tweakable individual memory timings (CAS, Trcd, Tras, Trp), whole range of CPU:DRAM ratios (1:1, 1:2, 3:5, 4:5, 4:6, 5:6 etc), independent AGP frequency and locked PCI bus for additional stability under high FSB, VCore up to 2.2V that will definitely satisfy many overclockers, VDIMM up to 2.9V that will aid memory stability and VAGP up to 1.9V. With all these BIOS settings, i am able to increase the FSB to 200Mhz at 2-2-2-5 memory timings and further more to 225Mhz after VDD mod. Since VDD is an important factor in determining system stability under high FSB therefore EPoX might wish to consider allow VDD tweaking in the BIOS in the next revision of PCB. Performance & Stability EPoX 8RDA+ performs very well against the KT400 platform especially when the CPU FSB is running at 166Mhz or 200Mhz synchronous with the Dual Channel Memory. The main intention is to run Dual Channel with this board therefore i don't see point getting this board and run at Single Channel .This board performs exceptionally well in SpecViewPerf tests and Content Creation applications which is good news for users using this platform for such applications. leggi la recensione (inglese)
