Got Apex? heeft een review online geplant van de Intel OR840 mobo, een Dual Slot-1 bord met de i840 chipset en Rambus en AGP 4x support. Deze hardware komt natuurlijk het best tot zijn recht in professionele workstations, jammer dus dat het zaakie voornamelijk op gaming performance is getest:
Overall, this board is very stable, and the whole system is pretty quick. Features such as 4 RDRAM slots, 6 fan connectors, built-in 10/100 NIC make this board a winner. Unfortunately, for most of us, the real qualities of this board only start to shine in heavily multithreaded multitasking applications. In the gaming environment, money is better spent elsewhere. I was disappointed in the overall gaming performance; I didn't notice too much speed difference from my personal machine (Celeron @ 567). I'm waiting for some serious next-level goods before I consider a major upgrade, and this machine doesn't meet that need. The higher FSB is very nice, and the additional RAM bandwidth is probably the biggest feature of this board.
