Socket 939 Motherboards - MSI and nVidia vs. ABIT and VIA - Benchmarks - CINEBENCH 2003

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.

CINEBENCH 2003 is the free benchmarking tool for Windows and Mac OS based on the powerful 3D software CINEMA 4D R8. The tool is set to deliver accurate benchmarks by testing not only a computer's raw processing speed but also all other areas that affect system performance such as OpenGL, multithreading, multiprocessors and Intel's new HT Technology.

 

 

Well, it appears that we're back to our normal results again. PCMark threw us for a loop, but the results of Cinebench reflect our initial impressions.

 

When testing the rendering performance of the processor alone the MSI board edges out the ABIT one. But when doing the actual rendering and taking advantage of the graphics subsystem the ABIT board once again shows its colors.
