The K7S6A finds itself again in the precarious position of being in last, even if it by only a couple of percent to the number one spot. The numbers are very close when looking at only the SiS 745 board with the KT266A and nForce boards.
This updated version of the MadOnion test is showing the same results as the older version does. The KT333 chipset has the obvious advantage here, winning out by about 7%.
Here is one of our last uses of the older SiSoft Sandra version 2001. ECS is pulling up the rear again here, and again by only a few percent when taking the top leader out. The SiS 745 chipset is coming up right next to the KT266A motherboard.
This is the first review we have used this version of SiSoft in — after playing with the new version for several weeks and getting consistent results, I decided to start implementing it. Though only the KT333 and SiS 745 boards are shown, you can see that the numbers are very different and more representative of real world tests. Here, the KT333 is winning by about 5.5%.
This test didn’t change much between the two versions, as you can see here. These results show that the motherboards are not hindering the performance on the processor itself.
