Conclusion: Well, we’ve seen all that the Intel i865PE chipset has to offer, and we have seen the performance of the Intel D865PERL, now it’s time to round it all up and call it a day. As usual, we’ll start our summation with the overall system stability. The overall stability of the system was as we expected from an Intel brand motherboard, rock solid. In my period of time with the motherboard, I have not yet encountered one major or minor issue with that of system stability.
Intel D865PERL Motherboard - Canterwood vs Springdale
23 July 2003
Conclusion: The D865PERL is a very competent board, and is surprisingly cheap for an Intel product. The complete lack of overclocking options means this is not a board for the overclocker, but for a high end workstation, this board is ideal. Although it is sold as a desktop board, it also has great potential for a low/medium end server.
