Editors Note - We were informed that the results we obtained from the DFI NB76 motherboard when we first published our review were faster than any others on the Internet. So we set about double checking to see if our results were correct by getting the motherboard tested by a different reviewer and doing all of the testings again from scratch. The results speak for themselves, they were out. Sorry for any inconvience, we thought it was only right we updated our review, even at this late stage. Take notice that the board now has a rating of 7.5 compared to 8 when first published with incorrect benchmarks. Thanks for your understanding!
SiSoft Sandra 2002 SP1
SiSoft Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) 2002 is a synthetic Windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems. We used this to test CPU Raw Performance, Multimedia Instruction Set and Memory Bandwidth Performance. While they are all synthetic results, they do give us a general idea of what is happening and where a component's strengths and weaknesses are.
