These results are guaged in FPS, where the higher score is better. You can see here that the Athlon 64 processor is WAY behind the group. I was unable to find the source of this problem, but I am guessing that the 23.3 score is not really a reliable one. After discussions with another reviewer at Computex, the source of the problem may be related to the IDE driver on the K8T800 chipset — I’ll be sure to look into that when I get back from Computex.
