As usual, we included a host of benchmarks that not only test the theoretical maximum of a product but also what it is capable of when it comes to real world gaming.

 

When it came to testing video, we choose two resolutions - first 640 X 480 which helps test the motherboard, chipset, processor and memory. While this is all good and well no one with this product will be gaming at this resolution in this day and age, so for that reason we also include 1280 X 1024 to give people a better idea of real world performance.

 

- SiSoft Sandra Max 3

 

SiSoft Sandra (System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) MAX3 is a synthetic Windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems.

 

- Buffered

 

 

As you would have expected, the memory bandwidth is lower due to the lack of PAT, minus this we still see a very healthy score.

 

- Un Buffered

 

 

Again the lack of PAT brings the score down but its nothing to worry about as it still scores very high.
