AOpen AK89-L Review
Posted by Philipp Esselbach on: 04/08/2004 05:58 AM [ Print | 0 comment(s) ]
Neoseeker take a look at AOpen's AK89-L, a budget K8T800 Athlon 64 board.
The AK86 does not skimp on the performance front. For most tests it was faster than the Nforce 3 based Gigabyte and in Call of Duty it trounced the K8NNXP thoroughly but in most of our testing situations it did not seem that the faster HyperTransport bus speed made a huge difference. This is especially true in the synthetic and office type benchmarks where the benchmark results were fairly similar between the two boards.
