Benchmarks: Winstone 2004, Winbench 99

Winstone 2004 Source: Zdnet

Content Creation Winstone 2004 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running top, Windows-based, 32-bit, content creation applications in Windows XP.

Business Winstone 2004 runs real applications through a series of scripted activities and uses the time a PC takes to complete these activities to produce its performance scores.

The two MSI motherboards were not available for these tests but here we see that performance overall is very good. Not quite as fast as the nForce4 Ultra, but still good.

Neither SLI board did well on these tests, quite possibly due to the beta status of the drivers. Hopefully performance will increase with subsequent updates.
