Socket 939 Motherboards - MSI and nVidia vs. ABIT and VIA - Benchmarks - 3DMark2001 SE

Mike has served us up some AMD related content today where he compares two Socket 939 Athlon 64 motherboards. The first is the MSI K8N Neo 2 Platinum which is based on nVidia's nForce3 Ultra chipset and the second is the ABIT AV8 3rd Eye which is based on VIA's K8T800 Pro chipset. We tested with an Athlon 64 FX-53 along with a whole bunch of benchmarks over a whooping 24 pages.

3DMark2001 SE is a part of the popular 3DMark series. By combining DirectX 8.1 support with completely new graphics (including the GeForce4), it continues to provide benchmark results that empower you to make informed hardware assessments.

 

 

Again we see some very close results but this time it is the VIA powered ABIT board that has the slight advantage. A quick check on the calculator shows a difference of just over 2%, so while it does manage to garner the better score, it isn't a massive difference.
