More Synthetics with Futuremark PCMark05

For our next round of synthetic benchmarks, we ran the CPU and Memory performance modules built into Futuremark's PCMark05.  Each test moving forward will be compared with two recent 945P motherboards we reviewed, the Gigabyte GA-8I945P-G and the Foxconn 945P7AA-8EKRS2.

More Synthetic CPU and Memory Benchmarks

Out of the three, the AL8 motherboard posted the best all-around results in the CPU module, taking close to a 90 point lead over the Gigabyte GA-8I945P-G.  When we take into account the 204MHz FSB, these boards are really one par with one another.

With PCMark05's Memory Module, the ABIT AL8 maintained its lead, but the margins narrowed to 35 points over the next fastest board, the Gigabyte GA-8I945P-G.
