The benchmarks below were run a minimum of three times, and the best 3 scores were averaged. I used SiSoft Sandra 99 Professional and Winbench 99 to measure subsystem performance, Quake 3 Test and Quake 2 to measure overall system performance.
Test System Configuration
Processor: Single Intel Celeron 333A @ 500Mhz Memory: 64 Megs PC-100 SDRAM Hard Disk Drive: IBM Deskstar 14GXP 10.1 Gig Video Card: 3dfx Voodoo 3 2000 AGP Operating System: Windows 98
special on the benchmarks above. Just your run of the mill results. Under
Windows 98 this board will perform just like a single processor motherboard. If
you refer back to the ABIT BE6 benchmarks you will see that the results are
similar with the BE6 having a slight advantage because of the higher processor
speed (515 Mhz). The only thing that surprised me was the slight performance
edge the system had running Quake 3 Test in comparison with Quake II. What's up
with that? The best explanation I can think of for that, is the fact that the
Quake II Crusher time demo was designed to show the worst possible scenario in
the game thus in effect putting the most stress on the processor, where the Q3
time demo was not. Okay, let's get to the juicy stuff.
