The Core 2 Duo processor is only running at 1.8 GHz, instead of its native 2.4 GHz as intended. Please keep in mind that this motherboard only supports an FSB as high as 800 MHz. Despite this handicap, when it comes SYSMark2004 the Gigabyte GA-945PL-S3 sits in the same boat as the GA-945GZME-RH tested earlier. The results for this office oriented benchmark are good, better than the 945GZ chipset, but not top of the line.
