Hey, it is a new chipset after all! This is an old archive page of HWZ prior to revamp. Please visit HWZ for the latest reviews and news.
Just because the motherboard has a ton of features on board doesn’t mean it can’t be expanded either. A 2-port USB 2. However, we had to fully investigate the board’s performance and took our time to obtain results satisfactory to us while good enough for a fair apple-to-apple comparison.
The board did perform amicably well in our initial tests and we were etjernet that its performance was way beyond the P’s counterpart.
MSI PE Neo2-FIS2R iPE motherboard Review –
This is the top of the line model with all the bells and whistles on board – so if you want to save a few dollars and don’t need all the little extras you can shoot for the ‘vanilla’ PE Neo2 version.
What the heck ethenret CoreCell?
So what you say? Ships with the following: Dynamic Overclocking Technology embedded as part of the CoreCell’s main technology. Before we go into the pros and cons of the motherboard, let’s just look at the technical specifications below: Beginners Guides Cases and Access.
MSI PE Neo2-V – motherboard – ATX – Socket – iPE Overview – CNET
Today we’re going to be weighing the pros and cons of MSI’s first entry into the mainstream Springdale iPE desktop mainboard market. With a total of eight USB2. For those who have caught up with reviews of the PE, they would have found out that PAT could be easily enabled by some sort of a cheat method – normally done at the BIOS level.
MSI 865PE Neo2-FIS2R – motherboard – ATX – Socket 478 – i865PE Series
Without going into all the nitty gritty details, we know for sure that PAT can be enabled in the PE, and when activated, the board will promise users performance equal to most boards based on the more expensive P chipset.
What took us off-guard, 865p we had the board way before P was launched, was MSI’s hidden feature known as D.
Two more headers are included on the PCB which do use a header, or if the case has a front panel connector they can also be connected there. Introduction When MSI first showed us their P Neo, we thought 865p was one of their best engineered product of all time but ndo2 did we know that the PE board following that was also designed based on the same philosophy and features.
It was then that MSI revealed to us that their board had this special tweak which made the processor run faster, but because the clock frequency tweak was done at a different level, there was no way the operating system could detect the change in frequency.
Boards which are based on the iE were faster and more powerfull than their iPE counterparts, but the i tops both. We were skeptical and we went back to testing it again, and again, and again.
You’ll no longer have to worry about installing the system then having to open it up because you have the HDD or Power LED in the wrong position. Needless to say, we were quite unhappy that this was hidden from us. In the package, you’ll find the following items: If you’re currently working with an iE RDRAM pentium no2 system and long ago made the decision to pass on the DDR-based iPE’s which has etherneet wooing consumers for the last six months, you should still take note.
Phew, that was a mouthful.
