The Gigabyte GA-945GM-S2 motherboard performs slightly slower than the P965 Express based reference motherboards due to it running the DDR2 memory at a lower frequency. The difference will most likely not be noticeable by the user in this types of office oriented applications, and performance is still considerably higher than the comparable AMD platforms.
