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

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!

Though we have used Halo in a couple of benchmarks in the past, it has now found a permanent place in our Benchmark Suite. This is simply due to its support for the latest DirectX 9 API's to put some more stress on the system to determine the best of the best.

 

 

Halo shows so far the biggest improvement in performance.
