Test System

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 (2.66GHz)

Memory: 2x 2GB Aeneon Xtune DDR2-1156MHz (Supplied by Aeneon)

Hard Disk: 500GB Western Digital SE16 (Supplied by Western Digital)

Graphics Card: IGP on Intel and VIA Platforms

Cooling: GIGABYTE 3D Galaxy II (Supplied by GIGABYTE)

Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista x64 SP1

Drivers: nForce Platform Driver, Hyperion Platform Driver, Forceware 180.42

As was our plan of attack with the Albatron board, we picked out the VIA Nano platform for our model benchmark. Since VIA introduced the world to Mini-ITX, it's only fitting their newest member is used here.

Today we will be only using IGP's as the ZOTAC board isn't able to upgrade the video unless you get a PCIe x1 graphics card, which we didn't have on hand to test with.

Despite the Intel board being limited to a single channel, it's still able to slightly outperform the VIA board which uses dual channel. Intel's Core 2 Duo is far better at memory access thanks to its higher clocked FSB.
