Benchmark Results

SYSmark 2000: Windows 98 SE

The differences between the tested motherboards are not very large. The charts for the two new motherboards are blue, all other boards are based on AMD's 760 chipset.

Both newcomers position themselves in the middle of the testbed. For your reference: the SiS735 prototype board scored a SYSmark result of 229 points. Obviously there is still some room for improvement.
