There's No Stopping Them: SiS Beats AMD & Co

Benchmark Summary

Both reference boards underwent a comprehensive testing procedure. The benchmarks that we ran were intended to reproduce operational performance as realistically as possible. A look at the benchmark graphics makes it immediately clear that only the SiS-735 chipset for the AMD platform shines with outstanding performance. In contrast, the SiS 635 placed last among its competitors in almost every benchmark.
