Sandra mem question again

Okay, now I know its a synthetic banchmark, not totally accurate etc.

But I was reading a review of the kr7 and the mem result stuck out. And I figured comparing kt266a boards isn't so bad (not testing absolute scores if you see what I mean)

I also know its always slightly dodgy to compare systems etc, but he was using xp1500 on various kt266a mobos using some kingmax 333ddr cl 2.5 I think.

I'm using epox, xp1500 and twinmos cl2 pc2100 (although seems to have same chips as pc2700 and runs at 166 cl2 fine).

ANYWAY, some of the results he posted using maxed settings:

Abit: 836/904, fsb at 133.38
Shuttle: 795/857, fsb at 133.5
MSI: 837/898, fsb at 133.8

And my Epox, turbo, cl2 4 bank: 813/888, fsb at 133.63

SO why the difference? Be interested to know other peoples sandra (te) scores done without fiddling with the alu option and at 133 fsb on an xp.

Epox tech, if you read this is there an optimised bios you could release like MSI have done (seems to give better benches, but a lower overclock capacity) so I can get a better comparison?

As you know it is possible to manually time the memory further to beat the scores of the competition, however it is thought that such timings may be unusable with bulk memory kinds.

So - if more bandwidth is required using "premium memory", resort to making manual timing adjustments, or - if using bulk memory stick to the in-BIOS timings.

I hope that you can appreciate that the majority of mainboards are sold into SI's for whom these easy settings are a reliable manner of enhancing performance past "Normal". If they use bulk type memory, and had "enhanced" timings, such facilities would be useless.
If you need EPoX BIOS eeproms in the UK, goto
