Neoseeker has published a review of Gigabyte's 8N-SLI Royal board. This is
one of the best overclocking boards we've seen from Gigabyte, and is well
worth a look:
This board is extremely overclocking friendly.
Even using fairly aggressive memory timings, our P4-560 immediately ran at
default voltage settings at a multiplier of 14 with a 1066Mhz FSB - running
the CPU at 3.73Ghz.
The memory bandwidth showed an impressive 30% gain in moving from a 3.6Ghz
CPU clock with 800Mhz FSB to a 3.73Mhz CPU clock with a 1066Mhz FSB. Given
that the processor was only overclocked by 3.6%, and the bus by 33.3%, it is
safe to say that the vast majority of the increased performance for Sandra
was due to the higher bus bandwidth.
