In terms of CPU performance, it seems that the P5N-E SLI has a slight edge over the abit AB9-Pro. The highest scoring was the Asus P5W64-WS Professional motherboard in this category.

Once again, the P5N-E SLI came in second behind the Asus P5W64-WS Professional; but has a slight edge over the abit AB9-Pro according to PCMark05's memory benchmarks.

On the other hand, it seems to us that the NF430 MCP is not as good as Intel's ICH7R and ICH8R in terms of SATA performance. Or, maybe that's just what PCMark05 thinks!
