FIRST LOOK: ULi M1695 PCIe/AGP Socket 939 for Athlon 64by Wesley Fink on July 13, 2005 12:05 AM EST

A casual glance would lead most anyone to the conclusion that the ULi AGP is the best performance of the group, performing at or near the top of Athlon 64 nF4 Ultra gaming. The PCIe performance is also competitive in every way, but it is not top-of-the-charts as the AGP generally is.
We think that the explanation may be a bit different in looking at these performance charts. ULi is experienced in AGP designs and tweaking, but this is really their first venture into PCIe space. It appears that the PCIe performance is quite good, but it requires a bit more tweaking to bring performance to the excellent performance levels of ULi AGP. When that refinement is complete, the ULi will likely be one of the fastest performers among AMD Athlon 64 boards.
