Synthetic CPU and Memory Benchmarks
SiSoft Sandra XI




Our raw synthetic CPU and memory benchmarks show the nForce 650i Ultra on solid ground against the competing 650i SLI and Intel 965 chipset.  Processor performance is identical across the board (as it should be).  The nForce 650i Ultra and SLI chipsets have a small advantage in terms of memory bandwidth over the P965, in addition to lower latencies, which can only mean good things in terms of performance.
