Testbed and Methods

In conclusion we would like to offer you a detailed performance testing of the ABIT Fatal1ty AN8 mainboard. We decided to compare its speed with the performance results shown by other Socket 939 solutions supporting PCI Express bus.

As a result, our testbeds were configured as follows:
