Testing:

The first part of our testing 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 100MB and 500MB files to test the time needed to compress these files. Time will be measured in seconds. Additionally, I will use the built in benchmark as a comparison.

 

ZIP:

Lower is Better

 

RAR:

Lower is Better

 

Geekbench:

 

Apophysis results lined up well, the MSI Eclipse SLI motherboard has a slightly higher CPU overclock so the gains are reflected in the respected charts. The WinRAR testing has a few anomalies but otherwise shows similar performance from the three motherboards. Geekbench has the ASUS and Gigabyte motherboards neck and neck, while the MSI scores just a little more.
