Today's test systems consist of our previously reviewed DFI 680i LT SLI motherboard. As normal we run the same suite of benchmarks such as Everest, PCMark, Worldbench, Adobe Premiere Elements, 3DMark06, Prey, Far Cry and HD Tach.


Tests were completed at stock speeds of 266MHz x 11 with a memory ratio of 1:1. Overclocking reached 485MHz x 7 for 3395MHz on the XFX while the DFI ran 487MHz x 7 for a slightly higher 3409MHz. We will be running a single graphics card configuration.
