The first part of our testing regimen will be the system specific benchmarks.
Let's get started 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.
Lower is Better
WinRAR is a tool to archive and compress large files to a manageable size. We will use 10MB, 100MB and 500MB files and test the time needed to compress these files. Time will be measured in seconds.
In Apophysis, the performance of the P6T Deluxe trumps that of the DX58SO by the smallest of margins. In the WinRAR testing the results between Intel's offering and that of the Asus are identical. Where the P6T pulls ahead is in the RAR testing. In both the 100MB and 500MB file compression tests the P6T is noticeably faster. It was six seconds faster in the 500MB testing. An improvement at stock speeds. When overclocked to 3.87GHz the score drops dramatically.
