ABIT KV8 Pro-3rd Eye ABIT KV8 Pro-3rd Eye: VIA's latest makes its way to the Socket 754 platform. How does it fair against the rest?

Like the Winstone tests, the KV8 Pro finishes on top of the other two boards. It is close between the KV8 Pro and K8N, but not so with the KV8-MAX3.


The KV8 Pro comes out ahead of the other two again in PiFast, clocking just over one second faster than the nForce 3 250 Gb, and just under a second faster than the K8T800.

CDex 1.51

Another close match here, with the KV8 Pro two seconds faster than the K8N Neo.

TMPGEnc 2.521

The KV8 Pro cracks the 4 minute mark here, something we were unable to do with previous K8T800 pro boards, and scored the best times we've seen using an Athlon 64 3200+.

Unreal Tournament 2003 - Antalus

Quake 3 Arena - Demo Four

As we've seen in the past, the VIA chipsets tend to score better in the gaming benchmarks when compared to the nForce 3. This trend continues with the K8T800 Pro.
