Shuttle's Latest BIOS

 

Only a little while before we were due to post this review, Shuttle sent us out a press release talking about their latest BIOS for the Shuttle SB65G2 giving the ability to increase performance by as high as 30%.

 

How could we ignore such claims? We just had to give it a run and see how it went.

 

 

Here we see the latest BIOS from Shuttle increase our memory performance by just under 400 points.

 

 

 

Under 3DMark 2001 we see that the latest BIOS affects video performance quite badly.

 

 

 

Moving to an actual gaming benchmark, we see the new BIOS take a hit of almost 30% which doesn't make the overall BIOS too exciting.

 

Maybe we are missing something here but all BIOS settings were double checked and we had the same settings set for both BIOS's.
