How We Tested

During our benchmarking sessions, we used the configuration listed below. Between our benchmarking sessions the only variable was the CPU being tested and the motherboard, which had to be replaced to match the different CPU sockets.

Hardware Configuration

Operating System Configuration

  • Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit
  • Service Pack 2
  • NTFS
  • Video resolution: 2560x1600 @ 60 Hz

Driver Versions

  • NVIDIA video driver version: 190.62
  • Intel Inf chipset driver version: 9.1.1.1015
  • NVIDIA nForce chipset driver version: 15.25
  • Intel network driver version: 14.4
  • Realtek audio driver version: 2.80A (6.0.1.5892)

Software Used

Error Margin

We adopted a 3% error margin; thus, differences below 3% cannot be considered relevant. In other words, products with a performance difference below 3% should be considered as having similar performance.
