Benchmarks

Testing Setup #1 (Abit AT7-MAX2)
  • Abit AT7-MAX2 Motherboard
  • Athlon XP 1800+ Thoroughbred CPU
  • 256MB PC-2100 DDR Memory
  • DangerDen Water Cooler

    Testing Setup #2 (Asus A7V8X)
  • Asus A7V8X Motherboard
  • Athlon XP 1800+ Thoroughbred CPU
  • 256MB PC-2100 DDR Memory
  • DangerDen Water Cooler



    CPU Benchmarks



    The SiSoft Sandra CPU tests were so close, it isn't even funny. The Abit AT7-MAX2 beat the Asus A7V8X in all of these tests, but only by a few points. It's really too close to tell which board is the best performer.




    I found it interesting that the Asus A7V8X beat the Abit AT7-MAX2 in the PCMark2002 Pro CPU test, but again there is only a few points difference between the two.

    Memory Benchmarks




    During the SiSoft Sandra & PCMark2002 Pro memory tests, the points were close but the winner was definitely the Asus A7V8X.

    Hard Drive Benchmark



    Finally there is a score that clearly shows which board is better in the category. In the hard drive category, the Abit AT7-MAX2 is clearly the winner. Both boards were set to ATA-66 (highest support by my hard drive), and they both were tested under the same conditions.
