If you're looking for AMD64 and SLI on a budget, the Albatron K8SLI motherboard might be just what the doctor ordered.

Test System Setup

 

Processor: AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (Winchester)

 

Memory: 2x 512MB Corsair DDR-533

 

Hard Disk: 2x Seagate 7200.8 (RAID 0) (Supplied by Seagate)

 

Graphics Card: ATI Radeon X800XT Platinum (Supplied by ASUS)

 

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2

 

Drivers: ATI Catalyst 5.9 and DX9c

 

In order to give you an idea about the performance of the Albatron K8SLI, we've compared it directly against the EPoX nForce4 Ultra motherboard which is known to be a good performer.

 

We've only included benchmarks with a single graphics card plugged into the Albatron motherboard since we're not terribly interested in SLI performance in this article but how the motherboard itself performs.

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

 

 

Memory scores are what are expected for the AMD64 line since the memory controller is built into the CPU itself.
