Soyo KT600 Dragon Ultra Platinum Motherboard Review - Benchmarks - Test System Setup and SiSoft Sandra 2004

Don't be fooled, the Athlon XP processor is still going strong despite the release of the expensive and not yet mainstream Athlon 64 processor by AMD. Today we've got the Soyo KT600 Dragon Ultra Platinum motherboard on the test bed which is based on VIA's KT600 chipset for the Athlon XP. If you cannot afford the Athlon 64 platform, pay very close attention to this motherboard!

SiSoft Sandra 2004

 

SiSoft Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) 2004 is a synthetic windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems.

 

 

 

 

Here we see the CPU optimisations are well above the nForce2 but as expected due to only a single channel DDR memory controller being used. However it is the most optimised we have seen of any KT600 motherboards.
