Gigabyte does SiS - 655TX hits the shelves for Pentium 4 - Benchmarks - PCMark04

We have another Gigabyte motherboard on the test bench today in the form of the 8S655TX Ultra. It is based on the new SiS 655TX chipset for the Pentium 4 including Prescott. We compare against Intel 875P and VIA PT880.

PCMark04

 

PCMark04 is a new multipurpose benchmark, suited for benchmarking all kinds of PCs, from laptops to workstations, as well as across multiple Windows operating systems. This easy-to-use benchmark makes professional strength benchmarking software available even to novice users. PCMark04 consists of a series of tests that represent common tasks in home and office programs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 8S655TX Ultra falls behind in both IDE and Memory benchmarks but is very capable in CPU and Graphics, giving it just a slightly slower final mark then the VIA and Intel based Gigabyte boards.
