Gigabyte GA-945GM-S2 945G Express Core 2 Duo Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The Core 2 Duo compatible Intel 945G Express northbridge is ideal for cash-strapped consumers and not so great for AMD... as we'll see with the Gigabyte GA-945GM-S2 motherboard.

PCMark05 numbers for the Gigabyte GA-945GM-S2 are good, but not as quick as the two P965 Express based motherboards. It'll be interesting to see if the gaming tests can detect the lower bandwidth. Compared to the Athlon 64 reference platforms the 945G Express handles this test a hair better.
