Socket A Is Coming: Test of 10 Boards

Viewperf 6.1.2 AWadvs-04

The Advanced Visualizer kind of shows the sequence of the game benchmarks. The Gigabyte boards look significantly better while the Abit KT7 ends up in last place.

Viewperf 6.1.2 DRV-07

In Design Review the middle field is composed slightly different. Again, Asus is in first place. In a motherboard comparison the SPECviewperf benchmark is not used to determine winners and loser but more for detecting instabilities. If the system has weaknesses the viewperf benchmark will crash under Windows 98 and Windows 2000.
