AMD's Spider platform in the test: CPU + chipset + graphics card

Preliminary benchmarks

As already mentioned, the assembled journalists in Warsaw were allowed to run only pre-installed benchmarks on the around 40 test systems. In teamwork with other German press colleagues, we were able to complete some benchmarks, because the time for free measurement was limited.

However, particular care is required when interpreting the values. The results are currently not comparable with other values ​​measured so far, as the platforms and equipment involved were completely different. The measured values ​​of the HD 3870, which can be read in our graphics card article , provide a rough guide. However, measurements were still carried out there on a PCIe 1.1-based system. Only later tests will be able to show how great the influence of the new PCIe 2.0 interface is.
