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.

Gigabyte GA-K8N Ultra-SLI (NF4 SLI 200/400) 39.2

Again the Gigabyte GA-K8N Ultra-SLI performs very well in the Winstone 2004 benchmarks. It could be that the Raptors again help push the system over the top, but it's obvious that the motherboard is a good performer on its own.

The disk benchmarks are very impressive especially the High End Diskwinmarks, though it helps to remember that we were using much faster hard disks with this Gigabyte board. The GA-K8N Ultra-SLI holds its own well in the graphical portions of the test too, independent of the drives.
