EVGA 780i SLI Motherboard Review :: Test Setup and Procedures

The standard benchmarks of our test platform don’t really address video card performance as they’re geared to motherboard performance and CPU performance. In this review we’ll look at the performance of the motherboard against other motherboards with Intel chipsets using our 6750 platform with the addition of SLI scores to show performance increases when two video cards are installed. SLI performance testing was done on two 8800GTS 320MB cards running 169.25 Forceware drivers and Windows Vista Home Premium Edition. As we test more 780i SLI boards’ comparison numbers will also be added.
