Asus Crosshair Motherboard Review

Former staff writer    -   February 26, 2007


Testing:

Test setup
AMD AM2 4200+
Asus Crosshair 590SLI
2 x 1 GB Kingston 677Mhz DDR2 Ram
320 GB HDD
650Watt NZXT PSU
Windows XP Pro SP2

    I am now going to run a total of 13 standard OCC benchmarks in order to give you, the reader, a fairly in-depth overlook of the performance, as well as other features, of this board.

When deciding how to properly test our motherboards, we decided to run the set of CPU, memory, and gaming tests. We feel this will give us the best results for this motherboard.

Apophysis


To begin the testing phase, we will be running Apophysis, which is a very unique piece of abstract fractal rendering software.  We have a template file so that we can monitor the render times and differences with different hardware. Results are as follows. Remember, lower is better in this case.



Next on the list comes Science Mark. The results we have are from the initial review of the 4200+ on the ASRock motherboard, compared to this Asus Crosshair.
