Test Systems and SANDRA
- Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 (2.93GHz) Processor
- 2 x Corsair XMS PC2-8500 (5-5-5-15) in 2T
- 1 x Nvidia GeForce 8800GTX (Nvidia 158.22Driver)
- 1 x Western Digital Raptor 10K RPM 74GB HDD
- 1 x NEC ND-3550A DVD+/-RW Drive
- 1 x Thermaltake Toughpower 850W Power Supply
Windows XP Professional SP2 (32-bit)
- MSI P35 Platinum
- eVGA nForce 680i LT, Nvidia nForce 680i LT Chipset
- Both motherboards are tested in a 1066MHz (11x266) and 1333MHz (9x333) FSB configuration with our X6800 CPU.
In our synthetic CPU and Memory tests, we see that the P35 Platinum is able to keep up with the nForce 680i SLI in all four of our tests, but although it kept up with the EVGA board, it didn't clearly beat it in any tests.
