GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-S2H 780G Motherboard - Test System Setup and Memory Performance

With AMD's 7 series chipset a big hit for AMD/ATI, GIGABYTE has sent us their 780G based micro-ATX board for review.

Test System

 

Processor: AMD Phenom X4 9850 @ 2.5GHz

 

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

 

Hard Disk: 500GB Western Digital SE16 (Supplied by Western Digital)

 

Graphics Card: GIGABYTE 9800GX2 (Supplied by GIGABYTE)

 

Cooling: GIGABYTE 3D Galaxy II (Supplied by GIGABYTE)

 

Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista SP1

 

Drivers: Catalyst 8.6, Forceware 175.16

 

Today's tests will consist of our ASUS M3A78 board and the GIGABYTE MA78GM motherboards. ASUS' board did not overclock at all in a stable manner, so we are unable to do OC tests with this board. But GIGABYTE did manage an increase as you saw just before, so we threw in the OC tests here.

 

At stock speeds the two systems were running with DDR2-1066MHz memory, since both boards support this with the Phenom X4 processors. At the GIGABYTE overclocked speeds, we ran with the memory at the same divider.

In our first stock tests there is nothing at all in it between the two boards. Only when overclocking on the GIGABYTE do we see a slightly higher result.
