Manufacturer: none

Test System Setup

Processor(s): Intel Pentium 4 540 (3.2GHz)

Graphics Card(s): GeCube X800XT PCI-E (Supplied by GeCube)

Memory: 2 X 512MB Kingmax DDR2 PC4300 (Supplied by Kingmax)

Hard Disk(s): Western Digital Raptor 74GB 10,000RPM (Supplied by Western Digital)

Operating System: Windows XP Professional SP1

Drivers: ATI Catalyst 4.9

We are benchmarking the two ABIT motherboards on our normal array of synthetic benchmarks to test the difference in CPU and Memory performance as well as 1024 X 768 and 1600 X 1200 in games to see if either motherboard offers much difference in normal gaming and some more extreme gaming.

It will be interesting to see if moving to the more expensive 925/DDR2 combo is warranted or if it's just a bunch of synthetic numbers playing tricks on us.

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

You can see that the more expensive 925X (AA8) is a little slower in the CPU aspects across the board yet when looking at memory it is faster. In other words both are very similar at this point.
