The performance of this board was pretty much on a par with the other motherboards. One interesting feature of this Intel board is the presence of a DVI connector directly on the motherboard. In raw scores, the EP Pro came in second, but the overall differences were too minor to be considered relevant. Overclockers should look elsewhere. Note that the performance differences between these boards are small, so memory bandwidth is not the deciding factor. The E series is not capable of supporting fastwrites, one of the advanced features of AGP 2. There are four DIMM sockets, giving the user some flexibility in memory installation.

Still only an board Rating: No tweaks available; finicky about PC memory Rating: All of the boards were fairly close in most of the tests. You can also asynchronously adjust the FSB: Documentation is good, though quite dense.
An array of four LEDs gives additional diagnostic information during system boot to aid in troubleshooting. However, both variants of the support a discrete AGP slot. As befits an Intel board, the layout is clean and conservative. The performance of this board was pretty much on a par with the other motherboards.
The integrated DVI mainboars allows system builders to configure very compact systems with digital flat panel monitors for applications such as small kiosks in public locations. Layout a bit awkward Rating: Performance was unremarkable, and getting even reasonable performance proved to be quite a chore. The company thoughtfully supplies the extra USB connector, which allows you to have four total.
Silkscreened labels identify pinouts for front panel connections. In games with 3D positional audio, frame rate hits are noticeable. Like many modern motherboards, you set the clock rate in the system BIOS.

Stable, onboard Mmainboard Cons: The printed circuit board PCB layout is relatively clean, and there were no visible patches or wire jumpers. Note that the performance differences between these boards are small, so memory bandwidth is not the deciding factor.
There are several versions mainboafd the D; the one we tested included built-in Ethernet and AC97 audio. After installing the Micron RAM, the DEEA performance proved to be on par with the other boards, although the memory bandwidth scores lagged a tad.

Gamers and mqinboard addicts should definitely steer away from this one, due to its lack of tweakability and fussiness about memory. Like most non-Intel boards these days, you can manually change memory timing, frontside bus speed and core voltage. Stable, clean layout, good performance in Windows 9x. The E and EP are each two-chip solutions. In the end, the EP Pro is a solid, stable performer. Intel manufactures the motherboards for several large PC manufacturers, including Dell and Gateway.
Overclockers should look elsewhere. The ppro of this board is clean and there were no potentially serious installation problems.
In most cases, this makes little difference, but no fastwrites support makes the chipset ill suited for some high-polygon count 3D content creation applications.
However, we deactivated both onboard audio and networking for our performance testing.
MSI 815e Pro FSB/Sound Problem
When a card is inserted into the AGP slot, the integrated graphics of the E are automatically disabled. The i graphics core is mmsi capable 2D core, though with extremely limited 3D capability. Intel is prepping an update to the for the Tualitin.
