We have done things a little differently this time. The current trend dictates that the difference in performance between different boards based on the same chipset is small and thus stability becomes one of the most important aspects when deciding exactly what motherboard to choose. That is why you will not find one single performance-graph here today. In the table below, you'll see how our extensive stability test was performed.
|Test description||Test Result|
|3DMark2001SE: Loop, 24 hours||Pass|
|Prime95: Loop, 24 hours||Pass|
|3DMark2000SE+ Prime95: Loop, 12-hours||Pass|
|DVD rip, WinAmp MP3, 3DMark2001SE: Simultaineous||Pass|
|Windows Media CD Playback, SiSoft Sandra BurnIn: Simultaineous||Pass|
The MSI NEO-LSR passed every single one of our stability tests without a hitch. These tests are more demanding then they may appear -- any instabilities or driver conflicts will show and cause the system pausing or hang.
