Once again, the Soyo Dragon Plus is right there with the AK31 Rev3 showing off the KT266A’s power. While the nForce does come ahead by as far as 4% in the test suite, the VIA chipset boards perform well.
The Soyo Dragon Plus boards beats the AK31 in the Read test by about 3% but loses to it in the Write test by about 12%. This is rather unbalanced, and I would like to have seen the Soyo do a bit better here. It is possible that the performance on this test might change with bios updates from either company. The NVIDIA nForce board falls behind by 16% and 3% on the tests to the KT266A boards.
The Dragon Plus comes in last place here, but is about 0.2% behind its direct competition in the AK31 Rev3 motherboard and only about a half a percent behind the nForce.
