Office Productivity performance from the Gigabyte GA-945PL-S3 motherboard is not bad all things considered. It's running a slower processor, which is the main reason the results are down from an average of 42 point. You are unlikely to notice this when actually using the system for office based activities however. It just goes to show you that you don't need a high powered processor to complete workstation & office productivity style tasks.

Again please keep in mind that the processor operating speed is slightly slower which explains why the numbers are so low. When viewing these SiSoft Sandra numbers, please keep in mind that the processor is running at a slower speed than stock. Memory bandwidth and CPU scores are in line with the Gigabyte GA-945GZME-RH, the other motherboard here running a Core 2 Duo with a 800MHz FSB.
