Gigabyte GA-M59SLI-S5 nForce 590 SLI Motherboard Review

Gigabyte GA-M59SLI-S5 nForce 590 SLI Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Looking at the feature set of nVIDIA's high end nForce 590 SLI chipset is like reading the menu on what a high end workstation system ought to have... except for the uninspiring single IDE channel.

Benchmarks: Office Productivity, SiSoft Sandra, Super Pi

Office Productivity Source: Zdnet

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.

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.

In the world of workstation applications, the Gigabyte GA-M59SLI-S5 is not able to separate itself from the other socket AM2 competition. Not that it matters much, in this world the system is mainly limited by the user anyway.

SiSoft Sandra numbers for the Gigabyte BA-M59SLI-S5 are exactly where we'd expect them. Reassuring to see there's nothing out of place here.

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.
