ASUS K8V-X 64 bit AMD Motherboard

 

ASUS A7N8X-X AMD XP Motherboard

 

 12/01/04

   What we are trying to show here is exactly what kind of performance increases you should expect when upgrading from an XP chip to the new 64 bit AMD CPU's. Both of these systems are run threw FutureMark's PCMarko4 software with base configurations and generic memory. Now please note that performance on the 64 bit system could be increased even more by adding SATA driver rather then IDE. We chose to stay with IDE on this test just to keep the hardware as similar as possible. Hope you enjoy!!!
