Testing:

First up are the system specific benchmarks that will test overall scientific performance. For the science tests, only the scores when paired with the PowerColor HD 4850 discrete card are shown to make the direct comparison to the other boards with the same setup.

 

To get things started, I will begin with Apophysis. This program is used primarily to render and generate fractal flame images. We will run this benchmark with the following settings:

  • Resolution: 2750x2048
  • Quality: 500
  • Limit Memory use: 512MB

 

The measurement used is time to render, in minutes, to complete. So lower is better.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WinRAR is a tool to archive and compress large files to a manageable size. I will use 10MB, 100MB, and 500MB files, as well as test the time needed to compress these files. Time will be measured in seconds.

ZIP:

 

RAR:

 

In Apophysis, the Abit AN78GS is on par with the others. In WinRAR, it showed an advantage, especially when compressing in the ZIP format, where it washed all of its opponents.
