Chaintech Zenith ZNF3-150 nForce3 Motherboard Review

Chaintech Zenith ZNF3-150 nForce3 Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Take it from me, with the "regular" Athlon64 'K8' processor you get about 95% of the Athlon64 FX performance, for about half the price.

It's rather unusual but nForce3-150 based motherboards seem to like to be overclocked. HDD performance jumps quite significantly!

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. Higher numbers represent better performance.
