We ran ZD's Business
Content Creation Winstone benchmarks to test
"real-world" performance in Office
Here we see the
Shuttle AK11 outpacing the Abit board by the
smallest of margins. If you're looking to
build a system to run Office type apps, you can't
go wrong with either board. Let's turn
things up a notch and see how the AK11 handles the
more intense Content Creation tests...
CONTENT CREATION WINSTONE:
There is not much we
can say here. The Shuttle AK11 and Abit
KT7A-RAID burned through the Content Creation
tests at essentially the same pace.
All in all, we'd have
to say we were very pleased with the Shuttle AK11.
The quality of the board is top notch, it is an
excellent performer and it's layout is near
flawless. We had a good luck while
overclocking and our test system was completely
stable throughout all of the benchmarks. If
you're in the market for a quality KT133A based
motherboard, you cannot go wrong with the Shuttle
AK11. Barring the fact that DDR is here, and
is very affordable, there is no disadvantage to
owning a board such as this. We give the VIA
KT133A based Shuttle AK11 a HotHardware heat meter
