LinuxHardware.org stages in a three-way shootout between Pentium
III motherboards. Quake III, disk access, and kernel compile times
provide the metrics, along with some evaluation of stability,
documentation, and support:
"As newer, faster, better processors emerge some forget
that the Pentium 3 processor is still a lot of power packed into a
chip. Those on a limited budget and still craving more power from
an Intel chip will look to the higher clock rate Pentium 3s. The
Pentium 3 is still a fine upgrade path for those running a chip at
500MHz or below. Those who plan on buying the latest in video card
technology will surely benefit from an upgrade to a Pentium 3 1GHz
or above. Considering all of this, we will now take one last look
at single processor Pentium 3 boards based on the i815EP chipset.
Included in this review are three boards: the Abit SA6R, the SOYO
SY-7IS2, and the DFI CS61-EC."
