Only one test score stands out here: the Drv-07 benchmark. The Soltek board is coming out nearly 10% faster than the MSI KT333 motherboard showing again how the Soltek board was able to dominate (though by small margins) in the 3D-based tests like Quake III.
The Cachemem test is amplifying what the SiSoft 2001 benchmark showed us: the Soltek motherboard has slightly faster memory throughput (in this case, specifically Reading) by as much as 10%. Because these results are purely synthetic, the real world results (such as in Quake and Sysmark) differ.
In the final test, the memory bandwidth increase give the Soltek one more win under its belt.
