J7F2 Mini-ITX motherboard benchmark

From PCWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Recently I got my hands on a J7F2 Mini-ITX motherboard so I decided to run some benchmarks on it to discover its capabilities.

The J7F2 model I have is fanless (J7F2WE1G2E).





This board features:



  • Support for VIA C7-D processor
  • 133 MHz FSB
  • Up to 1 GB RAM
  • Dual Monitor capability
  • Expandable with daughter-board
  • 6 Channel AC 97' Audio CODEC






  • The setup I used to test the system:*



VIA Eden 1.2 GHz processor 1 GB DDR2 533 Maxtor DiamondPlus9 7200 RPM 80GB ATA133 with 2MB buffer harddrive Onboard VIA UniChrome Pro graphics

The first thing I noticed when I powered it on was how silent it runs due to it being fanless. The only thing I could hear was the 7200 RPM harddrive I was using to test the baby. To be honest, I've never used a fanless computer so naturally I was skeptical if it would be able to withstand some tests that stress the CPU. I ran PCMark 05 on the system and from time to time used my hands to feel the temperature of the heatsink (very primitive way of measuring temperature but it works!). The temperature was pretty warm, but the computer was still operating wonderfully.






The PCMark 05 results can be found online at:

  • Conclusion:*


The Jetway J7F2 has the features and power to be used in embedded applications, such as a public kiosk or point of sales systems since it is very quiet and has no heat issues. For those looking for something with a little more juice, I'd try a board powered by Intel or AMD.
