Synthetic CPU and Memory Benchmarks
SiSoft Sandra XI

Our synthetic tests show the nForce 680i LT right in line with other high-end Socket-775 platforms in terms of raw processor and memory performance. While CPU performance is more or less identical to other high-end boards (as it should be, when all processors are clocked at the same level), we see some interesting memory issues. The nForce 680i LT shows a slight dip in bandwidth and slightly higher latencies compared to the nForce 680i (Striker Extreme).
