Test System


Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad QX6700 @ 3GHz (9x333MHz)


Memory: 2x 1GB DDR2-1186 Geil (Supplied by Geil)


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


Graphics Card: MSI GeForce 8800GTS 640MB (Supplied by MSI)


Cooling: OCZ Vendetta (Supplied by OCZ)


Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2


Drivers: Intel INF, Forceware 163.21


In today's tests we are pitting the NVIDIA 7150 against our already tested G33 Intel chipset using both onboard graphics in single channel memory mode and Dual Channel memory mode as well as adding a discrete graphics card into the mix.


All tests were with the CPU running 3GHz using a 9x multiplier and 333MHz FSB. The DRAM was set at 800MHz.
