Office 2007 Excel Big Number Crunch: This test takes a 6.2MB MIcrosoft Excel speadsheet and performs about 28,000 sets of calculations, including many of the most commonly used calculations in Excel. The measure of this test is how long it takes to refresh the sheet.
Lower 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 MultiProcessing), enabling the workload to be spread across the cores for quicker completion.
Higher Is Better
PCMark Vantage x64 is used to measure complete system performance. We will be running a series of tests to gauge performance of each individual motherboard to see which motherboard, if any, rises above the others.
The P55H-A performed very well in the Big Crunch. It managed to outperform the P7P55D Deluxe, and very close to the other boards. In POV Ray and PCMark Vantage every board performed extremely close. Once again the overclock brought significant increases in performance.
