View of the Asus P4B533-V, which showed the best performance in this test.

Asus sent in a motherboard with average features: six PCI slots, network chip, audio chip (C3DX 6-channel sound), and four USB ports are the standard features. The manufacturer also includes two slot brackets with USB, game and COM ports as accessories. This board, ready for the production line, showed good performance. However, once again, the test engineers factory-overclocked the FSB to 134.6 MHz.

Through aggressive memory timing, the Asus board displayed the best performance in the test.
