System Setup and Benchmarks

System Setup


For our benchmarking, we used the MSI K8T Neo2 motherboard, based around the VIA K8T800 Pro chipset that was sent to us with the processors from AMD.  On our Intel system, we of course used the latest LGA775 products, which forced us to use PCIe on it and AGP on the AMD side.  However, since we are using the same graphics core, running at the same clock speeds, differences there should be small.  All other hardware remained the same.
