I'm sorry to say that the performance evaluation was one of the most boring jobs I've ever done. The boards scored almost identically and the tiny differences I found are hardly worth mentioning.

I decided to run BAPCo's Sysmark98 and four 3D-games to find out performance differences between the motherboards. For Quake2 I ran crusher.dm2, for Quake3 q3demo1 at 'normal'-settings. Shogo used our own 'fortress'-demo and Expendable was run in 'timedemo'-mode.
