Worldbench 5

If you're curious how each chipset performs in real world applications, here are the test results from Worldbench 5. I put them all in one chart, because there's no much to talk about in terms of a motherboard review.

The results are based on the time it took to complete each test, so lower scores are better.

It is clear that these motherboard chipsets are relatively equal when it comes to real world application performance. CPU speed will have more influence than anything, and with the memory controller integrated into the Athlon64 CPU, motherboards have more to do with features than performance now.
