Fujitsu-Siemens D1527/ D1547: Made In Germany, Continued

The End User Pays: 13 Boards With Intel 845GE/PE
By

It wasn't until shortly before the test was over and long after the introduction of the chipset that the manufacturer supplied a BIOS with HyperThread support. In addition, both boards are still fitted with a 100 MBit network controller, although it would be possible to equip them with a Gigabit chip (different layout). Siemens came up quite early with an intelligent fan controller for adjusting the system and CPU coolers. It has been almost four years since then; what's known as "Thermal Management" made its debut already on the Intel 440BX for Slot 1. The times are changing - not only Asus and Aopen, but also Intel has come up with comparable or even better solutions. In contrast to the Aopen controller, Siemens won't let you specify your own temperature ranges. Though a special version was presented to the THG staff at the Siemens site, this functionality is only available for competent and expert OEMs. The fact that Siemens continues to focus on OEM customers is made clear by the automatic configuration of processor, memory and FSB speeds.


Recommended memory modules from Siemens for current boards.


Stability is everything: sample configuration for D1527.


State-of-the art technology: SMD voltage control.
