Our Test Candidates

 

As we mentioned at the beginning of this article, all our test motherboards come from one manufacturer, Gigabyte.

 

We did this for two major reasons - Firstly compatibility across the board which means that Gigabyte has done all the optimisations. This means it is not one company against another providing us with a fairer playing field. The second reason is Gigabyte's diversity, not many manufacturers will build motherboards based on every chipset available.

 

- Intel 875P

 

 

For our I865PE tests we used the 8IPE1000 Pro 2 GT

 

- VIA PT880

 

 

For the PT880 motherboard we used the 8VT800 Ultra

 

- SiS 655FX

 

 

For the SiS 655FX motherboard we used the 8S655FX Ultra

 

- SiS 655TX
