Test Systems

 

For our test systems we used only server benchmarks, as we are unable to use a PCI-E or AGP video card on this motherboard which is due to the fact this board is designed for the server market, as we mentioned earlier.

 

In order to gauge the benchmarks we compared the system with Dual and Single CPU operation then compared it to a Prescott Pentium 4, Pentium 4 Extreme Edition due to the P4EE being based on the older Xeon core as well as the AMD Athlon 64 3200+. We would like to have compared the system to a Dual CPU Opteron however AMD in Australia don't particularly like cooperating with print and web media.
