Of course, we subjected the 6VJD to our usual motherboard test suite. Our test setup involves continuous looping of the following programs:
Distributed.net RC5 Client, High Priority – Stresses processors
SETI at Home Client, High Priority – Stresses processors & memory bus
MadOnion 3Dmark2000 – Stresses CPU, Memory & AGP bus
Intel IOMeter, Default Access Pattern – Stresses PCI/IDE bus
NullSoft Winamp, Looped MP3 Playback – Stresses PCI bus/Sound system
The above programs are each run separately to ensure they function on their own, then are all run synchronously for 72 hours. All crashes are noted.
Hardware Analysis would like to thank Apacer Technology Inc. for providing the PC2100 DDR memory used during testing. For more information on Apacer products, you can visit http://www.apacer.com
