Test System System
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 x2 4200+
Memory: 2x 512MB Corsair DDR-533
Hard Disk: 2x Seagate 7200.9 in RAID 0 (Supplied by Seagate)
Graphics Card: 2x nVidia GeForce 7800GT (Supplied by ASUS)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2
Drivers: nVidia ForceWare 84.21 and nForce4 AMD/Intel X16 6.85
As we mentioned in the introduction, we are comparing the ABIT AN8 32x against the Albatron K8SLI, which is based on the older nVidia nForce 4 SLI chipset that uses two slower 8x PCI Express ports for SLI graphics.
We're expecting to see the ABIT AN8 32x come out in front since it uses two 16x full speed PCI Express ports for SLI.
Let's continue on and see how the ABIT motherboard performs against the Albatron solution.

SiSoft Sandra (System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is a synthetic Windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems.
ABIT gets a slight lead in memory performance. We checked this because of the memory controller being located on the CPU and performance should almost be exactly the same.
The reason is that ABIT's clock gen runs the CPU slightly above 200MHz when at CPU default speeds.
