Testing:

Office 2007 Excel Big Number Crunch:

This test takes a 6.2MB Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and performs about 28,000 sets of calculations that represent many of the most commonly used calculations in Excel. The measure of this test is how long it takes to refresh the sheet. A lower time is better.





 

 

 

 

 







 

POV Ray 3.7:

This program features a built-in benchmark that renders an image using Ray Tracing. The latest versions offer support for SMP (Symmetric Multi-Processing), enabling the workload to be spread across the cores for quicker completion. A higher average render is better.

PCMark 7:

PCMark is a full-spectrum benchmark based on real-world tasks, including video transcoding, photo editing, gaming, and web surfing. The suite is designed to provide an overall view of system performance based on scores from these different areas of testing. A higher composite score is better.

Still too close to tell if there's a definite improvement when moving from the 890FX chipset to the 990FX. On the other hand, being able to overclock the 1055T a little bit further shows up in benchmarks like POV Ray that are heavily CPU dependent.
