Performance was a bit confusing as it did well on some tests and sank with others. This was a bit strange as the board ran fine with no negative apsects to report with either the various parts I used or the software used in our test platform. I tested the board with our standard benchmark setup and after flashing the BIOS to the latest one, tested it with an Athlon X-2 4800, which ran without issue as well. It is possible that newer drivers can improve performance and some users may get better or worse results depending on what drivers are used. The board was compatible with Crucial. Corsair and Kingston memory modules and worked with both the ATI and NVIDIA flavors of VGA card.
