I took the opportunity of a new platform to update our tests for the AM2 motherboards. Of note is the removal of 3Dmark03 from our test suite and the inclusion of SuperPi, which is an excellent test for CPUs. 3Dmark06 is the latest graphics card test from Futuremark and PCMark05 is the latest system test from Futuremark.
