How We Tested

On our benchmarking we used the following configuration.

  • Motherboard: Chaintech CT-9CJS Zenith (Intel 875P)
  • Memory: Two 256 MB PC3200 TwinMOS memory modules in DDR Dual Channel configuration
  • VGA: Gigabyte Radeon 9800 Pro
  • Video resolution: 800x600x32

Software Configuration

  • Windows XP Professional using NTFS file system
  • Service Pack 1A
  • Direct X 9.0A
  • Intel Inf driver version: 5.00.1012
  • ATI video driver version: 7.88 (6.14.10.6343)

Benchmarking software used

We adopted a 3% error margin. So, performance differences below 3% cannot be considered meaningful. In other words, products where the performance difference is below 3% must be considered as having similar performance.
