Benchmarks: Winbench99, SiSoft Sandra

Winbench 99 V1.2 Source: e-Testinglabs.com

WinBench 99 is a subsystem-level benchmark that measures the performance of a PC's graphics, disk, and video subsystems in a Windows environment. WinBench 99's tests can run on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows Me systems.

Gigabyte GA-8S655TX Ultra Score Ranking
1a. Business Disk - 200/400


1b. Business Disk - 210/420


2a. High-End Disk - 200/400 48200


High-End Disk - 210/420 50000
3a. Business Graphics - 200/400 803
3c. Business Graphics - 210/420 835
4a. High-End Graphics - 200/400 1530
4b. High-End Graphics - 210/420 1600

Those are among the highest HDD scores I have ever seen. It's amazing that SiS is able to get so much performance out of the HDD subsystem!

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system and individual components. The numbers taken though are again, purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance.

Processor scores are in line with what we would expect. Memory bandwidth numbers are very nice though, just above i875P numbers!
