The two Abit KT266A motherboards are neck and neck here, but still aren’t a match for the raw power the KT333 powered MSI KT3 Ultra is able to provide on a couple of the specific tests.
Here we see the Cachemem program amplifying the fact that the DDR333 memory on the KT333 motherboard had to be scaled back to CAS 2.5. With the latency testing involved in this benchmark we see this much more prominent than we did with the SiSoft tests. Here, the KT266A powered KR7A-133R is actually beating out the KT333 board in raw memory speed.
These scores are pretty close and this is the only time I’ve seen the new Abit board fall behind the old one.
