Synthetic CPU and Memory Benchmarks
SiSoft Sandra XI

Our first round of synthetic tests show the two Abit platforms performing on par with our competing eVGA/nVidia platforms in terms of CPU performance, although both Intel based boards falter a bit when it comes to memory performance. Nvidia’s products show higher bandwidth numbers and lower latency, both of which help overall performance. We see very little difference between the memory controllers of the P35 Express and P965, which is a little disappointing, as we were hoping to see a performance boost with the P35.
