ULi Fights Back - M1695 Athlon 64 Chipset Preview - Benchmarks - Super PI

During Computex 2005 in Taiwan there was plenty of talk around town about ULi's fight back into the chipset scene. The company formerly known as ALi has sent us their newest AMD64 reference motherboard based on their M1695 Athlon 64 two chip chipset solution. Read on as we take a complete look at the design behind the chipset and how it performs against VIA's K8T890 Pro and nVidia's nForce4 Ultra chipsets. Do we have a real new chipset competitor on the block? Read on and find out!

Developed by some folks from the University of Tokyo (yes, Japan), Super PI is a small utility that does just as the name implies. It figures PI to a set number of decimal places. Since PI is an infinite number to the right of the decimal point, the utility measures the time it takes to figure a set number of places. It runs the calculations a set number of times and gives a time for the completion of the task. This is a simple and effective way to measure the raw number crunching power of the processor being used to compile the results.

 

 

Here we see Super PI scores almost identical across each platform.
