EPoX's board performed adequately in the benchmarks, coming near the top in a few of the benchmarks. SLI boards tend to be the fastest performing motherboards on the AMD market, and EPoX's board is no exception to that rule. The differences between the fastest SLI board and the slowest nForce4 board are the memory bandwidth and slightly lower gaming performance.
