    Ya can?t have a motherboard review without benchmarks. These benchmarks were taken using the 2500+ Barton processor. I found the results to be quite low but then again I strongly believe that the preset benchmark comparison results that come with the Sandra software are wrong. Any benchmarks I take using Sandra have a common trend ? I almost ALWAYS score lower than the scores they get. Does anyone else notice this? Anyways, here are the results. They pretty much speak for themselves.

    These are the stats we got with wcpuid. This is so that you can see what we are working with processor-wise.

    The results of this benchmark are an acception. As you can see both the Dhrystone and Whetstone scores higher than most of the other processors that are around the same speed as the 2500+ which is 1.83GHz.

    The integer score in this benchmark is lower than normal for some reason. The Floating-Point is a little above average though. All in all a nice combination of scores.

    Reason being the scores are so low in this benchmark is the fact that we are only using PC2100 RAM. Judging by the score I could positively say that if you were using PC3500 RAM you would get a good, above standard/average score.

    The scores I got from this benchmark surprised me. I really expected them to be higher. I believe that once again, because we are using PC2100 RAM for this review, this affected the score and caused it to be lower than average. I wouldn?t expect if to be that much of a bottleneck though.

    Average out of the box score for a Ti4800 SE.

    All in all I found the scores to be quite good. All of the scores were higher than the ones we achieved using the Gigabyte GA-7VAXP Ultra board. Although, the AGP could have been slightly better. We received a score of around 10,900 with the Gigabyte board and only 10,300 with this board. If you?re a serious gamer, I?m not going to lie to you, there are boards out there with better AGP performance. If you?re just a hardcore applications user and litecore (Is that a word? Solitaire? Can I get a hell yeah? ) gamer I would recommend this board over any other that I?ve tested.
