Gigabyte GA-K8NF-9 Motherboard Review :: Performance Charts

I don't expect the highest performance from this board. The GA-K8NF-9 is based upon the standard nForce4 chipset. The other boards I tested were the SLI versions of the Gigabyte nForce4 Ultra and the Asus A8N-SLI board. Note that I tested these boards in single card mode. The other test hardware is the same as our Socket 939 test platform, with the exception of a PCI Express 6800GT in place of the 9800XT on the AGP system.
