Iwill KA266 DDR Motherboard Review

Iwill KA266 DDR Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Since I have been particularly impressed with other Iwill motherboards like the KK266 and BD133, I was hoping that my first experience with ALi's Magik 1 chipset and DDRAM would be pleasant.

We have a couple new benchmarks included in this motherboard review:

Content Creation 2001: Simulates real world office type situations, e.g. having multiple office type applications all computing and multitasking at the same time. The higher the numbers, the better.

WinBench 99: Stresses all components of a computer, graphics card, memory subsystem, harddrive, mainboard and how they work in unison. Again, the higher the numbers, the better.

I also had the opportunity of using 3D Winbench 2000 and Business Winstone 2001, however, they wouldn't finish the test no matter what I did.
