Looking at these scores, we can see that the K8SLI is more or less on par with its most eminent competitor the A8N-SLI Deluxe, as well as the rest of the pack of nForce 4 motherboards. This doesn't come as much of a surprise, as unless the manufacturer implements some sort of performance boost or kooky secret overclocking, all boards of the same chipset will perform similarly. This begs the question then - if the performance isn't anything special, what exactly does this motherboard have to offer?
