The only scores that we are seeing differ here are the Light-04 test and the Awadvs test by 4% and 3% respectively. The nForce has a fair lead in those tests, but is about equal to the KT266A in the rest of them. Those tests where the nForce comes out ahead take advantage of that theoretic memory speed increases we witnessed in the SiSoft results.
Unlike the SiSoft tests, the KT266A powered AK31 Rev3 comes out ahead here. I have seen this trend several times now, where the Cachemem and SiSoft scores are switched, and I haven’t been able to find a cause for it yet.
Both the nForce setups take the KT266A by a very minimal margin. Again, negligible are the differences in the test results.
