DFI Lanparty UT NF680i LT SLI-T2R Motherboard

Testing

I will be running the DFI Lanparty UT 680i SLI-T2R through a series of benchmarks to compare the performance of the board and 680i LT chipset to the XFX 680ILT sli and Abit IN932x-Max, two of the other 680i variants on the market today. I will be using both system and video benchmarks to make this comparison in performance. All clock speeds and memory timings will be the same on both of the boards to eliminate any variances. All video card settings were left at set-up defaults, again eliminating any variances. I will be including overclocked results for the DFI motherboard to show the performance improvement over stock.


Testing Setup:
  • CPU: Intel E6700 Core 2 Duo 266x10
  • CPU overclocked:  Intel E6700 Core 2 Duo  400x9
  • Motherboard: DFI Lanparty 680i LT SLI-T2R
  • Memory: 2 x 1GB Mushkin XP9200 400FSB 5-4-4-12
  • Video Card(s): Evga 8800 GTS 640MB
  • Power Supply: Thermaltake Toughpower Cable management 1000w
  • Hard Drive: 2 x 74GB WD raptors in raid 0, 2 x WD 250GB 16MB cache SATA
  • Opticals:   BenQ DW-1655 Lightscribe DVD-R, Sony DVD-ROM
  • O/S: Windows XP Service pack 2

Comparison System:

  • CPU: Intel E6700 Core 2 Duo 266x10
  • Motherboard: Abit In9 32x-Max
  • Motherboard: XFX 680i LT SLI
  • Memory: 2 x 1GB Mushkin XP9200 400FSB 5-4-4-12
  • Video Card(s): Evga 8800 GTS 640MB
  • Power Supply: OCZ GameXStream 700 watt
  • Hard Drive: 2 x 74GB WD raptors in raid 0,  2 x WD 250GB 16MB cache SATA
  • Opticals: BenQ DW-1655 Lightscribe DVD-R, Sony DVD-ROM, Plextor 755a

The system tests we will be using are listed below:

  • Apophysis 2.2
  • PcMark 05 Professional
  • Sisoft Sandra XI
  • Sciencemark
  • Cinebench 9.5
  • HD Tach 3.1
  • SpecViewperf 9.0
  • WinRAR

Lets 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 to : 512mb

The measurement used is time  to render in minutes to complete.


Lower is Better

It looks as though the DFI is showing a little muscle early on.
