Today's test bed goes back to us running twin X1950 Pros in Crossfire mode. We wanted to see if the extra bandwidth of DDR3 in its stock speed form of 1066MHz is able to beat out the P35 running DDR2 800MHz. Our usual array of tests are put on show along with a new one, power usage. That's right, we have another power thingy for the motherboard test beds and will be including that from now on.
Let's delve right into the tests shall we?
