Gigabyte 8GPXNP Duo Revisited - New BIOS, Better Performance - Benchmarks - PCMark

We first looked at Gigabyte's 8GPXNP Duo motherboard (which is based on Intel's 915 chipset for Pentium 4 processors) a little while back in our Intel I925 and I915 Mega Roundup, we found the performance with the original BIOS to be less than stellar but since then we have worked with Gigabyte and they have released a new BIOS for the motherboard designed to deliver better performance and overclocking options. Read on as we take a closer look at the new BIOS!

PCMark is a multipurpose benchmark, suited for benchmarking all kinds of PCs, from laptops to workstations, as well as across multiple Windows operating systems. This easy-to-use benchmark makes professional strength benchmarking software available even to novice users. PCMark consists of a series of tests that represent common tasks in home and office programs. PCMark also covers many additional areas outside the scope of other MadOnion.com benchmarks.

 

 

 

Again performance has improved over the last BIOS revision - so far so good.
