ASUS SK8V Motherboard Review

Quote from the review at HardOCP:

“Performance wise, the SK8V definitely delivered. However, the proximity in performance on most benchmarks between it and the Athlon64 board coupled with the 3400+ CPU was rather disturbing, on multiple levels. The SK8V should have blown the Athlon64 board out of the water, just due to the fact that it has an incredible amount of memory bandwidth available due to its Dual Channel memory bus. This is really where the cracks start to show – for the price, the SK8V / FX-51 combo performance when compared with the Athlon64 / 3400+ just don’t justify the cost differences between the two.”
