ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 Testing:
SiSoft Sandra is a diagnostic utility and synthetic benchmarking program. Sandra allows you to view your hardware at a higher level to be more helpful. For this benchmark, I will be running a broad spectrum of tests to gauge the performance of key functions of the CPUs.
X.264 Benchmark: This benchmark is used to measure the time it takes to encode a 1080p video file into the x264 format. The default benchmark is used with an average of all four tests on each pass taken as the result.
HandBrake 9.5 is an open source application used to transcode multiple video formats to an h.264 output format. The test file size is a 4GB full length movie that is reduced in size to a 1.5GB file.
A close but, in order of overclock frequency finish here between the three, with an ever so slight lead to the two flagships in the stock clocked benches. These are two tests that show relatively little difference for the extra 100MHz+ OC the Sabertooth affords, however the Sabertooth R2.0 leads the way in overclocked mode nonetheless.
