System Setup

This content was originally featured on Amdmb.com and has been converted to PC Perspective's website. Some color changes and flaws may appear.

In keeping with our recent trends, we are using the identical test setup for the SiS 746FX review that we have used in our KT400, nForce2 and recent KT400A reviews. Just as with our recent KT400A chipset review, keep in mind that the board we are using here is a reference board and that performance could possibly increase once we begin to see production boards hitting the streets.
