Benchmarks: SiSoft Sandra 2004, Super Pi

SiSoft Sandra 2004 Source: Sandra

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system as well as the individual components. The results are also purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance.

In SiSoft Sandra 2004, the Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-SLI keeps up with the other motherboards in the processor tests but the memory bandwidth test is surprisingly low. In fact it's about 1000MB/s slower than the other two nForce4 based motherboards. Let's see what this translates to in CPU and 3D related performance.

Super Pi Source: SuperPI

SuperPI calculates the number PI to 1 Million digits in this raw number crunching benchmark. The program allows the user to change the number of digits of PI that can be calculated from 16 thousand to 32 million. Our benchmark is set to 1 Million digits and 19 iterations.

SuperPi
1 Million Digits: Seconds Ranking
ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR (Ali M1689 200/400) 36
Soltek SL-K8TPro-939 (K8T800 Pro 200/400) 34
MSI K8T Neo2-FIR (K8T800 Pro 200/400) 35
MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum (NF3 Ultra 200/400) 35
Epox 9NDA3+ (NF3 Ultra 200/400) 35
Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 (NF4 Ultra 200/400) 34
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI (NF4 SLI 200/400 X800XT) 36
Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-SLI (NF4 SLI 200/400 X800XT) 36

It shouldn't be any surprise that Super Pi times are about the same, after all the processor is the same on all boards.
