ScienceMark tests real world performance instead of using synthetic benchmarks. For this test, I ran the benchmark suite and will use the overall score for comparison, where higher is better.
CineBench is useful for testing a system CPU and OpenGL capabilities using the software program CINEMA 4D. I will be using the default tests for this benchmark.
HD Tune measures disk performance to make comparisons between drives or disk controllers.
In ScienceMark, the AN78GS gets the lowest score. However, in Cinebench, it has an advantage over the other boards. HDTune states the same as SiSoft Sandra, that the storage device performance is better. The Abit AN78GS literally owned the other AMD boards using the southbridge SB750. In fact, the ID075C from NVidia used on this Abit board is on par with the Intel ICH10R, based on the results found here.
