EPoX's Socket AM2 MF570 SLI Motherboard Reviewed - Benchmarks - Test System and Sandra

It's been a long time since we reviewed anything from EPoX but today we look at their nForce 570 SLI Socket AM2 board.

| Socket AM2/AM2+ in Motherboards | Posted: Dec 5, 2006 5:00 am
TweakTown Rating: 7.0%      Manufacturer: EPoX

Test System Setup


Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ AM2


Memory: 2x 1GB DDR2-1066 Corsair (Supplied by Corsair)


Hard Disk: 500GB Seagate 7200.9 SATA (Supplied by Seagate)


Graphics Card: MSI Radeon X1950 Pro


Cooling: Gigabyte K8 Neon (Supplied by Gigabyte)


Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2


Drivers: nForce Platform Driver 9.16, ATI Catalyst 6.11 and DX 9c


We put the EPoX MF570 SLI against our MSI K9N SLI Platinum based on the same chipset just to see what is available from this board.


The EPoX board was running at default clock speeds and overclocked speeds. The OC speed was 2100MHz (350MHz FSB x 6) and the MSI board OC was 2112MHz (352MHz FSB x 6).


Let's conitnue on and see how the EPoX board is able to perform against the MSI board that we have already established as a solid product.

SiSoft Sandra (System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is a synthetic Windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems.



EPoX at stock speed is able to just outscore the MSI board, quite possibly due to a few extra tweaks to its BIOS and memory settings. At overclocked speeds the MSI is just in front but only just.
