COMMENT " MSI K7N2 Delta-L wins Comanche4 by 4%, Desert Rats vs Afrika Korps by 15%, Far Cry by 8%, Painkiller by 2%, Unreal 2 by 5% and X2 the Threat by 2%. The only victory for the ASROCK K7S8XE+ was with the stratgey game Haegemonia Legions of Iron which it won by 2%.

COMMENT " MSI K7N2 Delta-L wins this MSI K7N2 DELTA-L vs ASROCK K7S8XE+ REMATCH but only by 5% against the ASROCK K7S8XE+ using the 1.91a performance bios and 9% against the ASROCK K7S8XE+ using the official 1.90 bios."

CONCLUSION " MSI K7N2 Delta-L is 9% faster than the ASROCK K7S8XE+ with the official bios but only 5% faster when the ASROCK K7S8XE+ is using the beta performance bios. MSI K7N2 Delta-L won most of the benchmarks but the ASROCK K7S8XE+ was usually close behind and when you consider the price difference (also note that MSI K7N2 Delta-L was using dual channel and the ASROCK K7S8XE+ was using single channel) makes the ASROCK K7S8XE+ great value."
