ScienceMark is a comprehensive benchmark program that stresses your system by performing resource intensive scientific calculations. The program runs six optional tests and provides comparable results between different platforms. Intensive processing and memory requirements of the benchmark make it suitable for use as a stability test. It supports MMX, SSE, SSE2, 3DNow!, Hyper-Threading technologies and multi-processor systems. Sciencemark provides an overall score and higher results provide better performance.
CineBench is a real world benchmarking suite that assesses your computer's performance capabilities. It is based on Maxon's animation software, CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. CineBench runs several tests on your computer to measure the performance of the main processor and the graphics card under real world circumstances.
The results showed similar performance during CineBench testing.
HD Tune is a hard disk utility that benchmarks transfer rate, access time, CPU usage and burst rate. It also reveals such things as partition information, supported features, firmware version, serial number, disk capacity, buffer size and temperature.
The GF9300T-A did not perform as well as the other boards during Sciencemark testing and fell behind by over 200 points. The ECS board's burst rate result came in surprisingly lower than the comparison boards. All other HD Tune scores were similar.
