Will the situation be mirrored in Serious Sam 2?.


Another aspect to bear in mind is the relative running speeds of both systems when set at CPU defaults.

We tried to find the limit of the motherboard by using a factory-unlocked 1.

We don’t like to see this happen, but in the cut-throat world of motherboard manufacturing, any increase in performance, a7v266-r gained, is more than welcome. Let’s have a look at the specification in a little more detail. Features and Installation Just a brief glimpse reveals that Asus have loaded the board with some rather nice goodies. The software package, although not as impressive as some we’ve seen, is more q7v266-e adequate.
