There is a slightly different result when using this more synthetic gaming benchmark. The differences between the KT266A boards hover around 1% and the difference between the MSI board and the nForce board in 32-bit mode is about 2%. Hardly a noticeable change in speed here.
Once again we are seeing the nForce reference board beating out the KT266A boards by a noticeable margin of about 14%. The issue, that is still under investigation with VIA and myself, is between the KT266A chipset and the Athlon XP processors. While I do not have any more information on it now than I did back in the Epox 8KHA+ review, I will keep everyone updated as I know more.
Clearly even all the way across.
