In terms of CPU, it seems to us that the 975X based Asus P5W64-WS Professional performs better in PCMark05. The P5NT-WS tied the P5N-E SLI, however; which utilizes the same northbridge.

On the other hand, the Asus P5NT-WS appears to be very good with memory.

... and quite favorable when it comes to the hard drive score with its NF570MCP southbridge. Trust me, I've rerun this test many times and obtained identical results.
