Testing:

Here at OverclockersClub.com, we have put together a series of benchmarks to show real world performance, as well as gaming performance on the items we are reviewing. Today we will be looking into the performance that the ECS P35T-A motherboard has to offer. We will show performance at both default settings and at overclocked settings to show the performance gain for those who choose that road. For comparison, we will pit it against another P35 express chipset board, the Abit IP35E, as well as the lite version of the 680i chipset, represented here by the DFI 680i LT. All clock speeds and memory timings will be the same on each of the boards to eliminate any variables. All video card settings were left at setup defaults, also to eliminate any variables.

 

Testing Setup:

  • CPU stock: Intel E6700 Core 2 Duo 266x10
  • CPU stock: Intel E6750 Core 2 Duo 333x8
  • CPU overclocked: Intel E6750 Core 2 Duo 397x8
  • Motherboard:ECS P35T-A
  • Memory: 2 x 1GB Mushkin XP9200 400FSB 5-4-4-12
  • Video Card(s): Evga 8800 GTS 640MB
  • Power Supply: Ultra X3 Modular Power supply
  • Hard Drive: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
  • DFI 680i LT TR2G
  • Motherboard#3: Abit IP35- E
  • Memory: 2 x 1GB Mushkin XP9200 400FSB 5-4-4-12
  • Video Card(s): Evga 8800 GTS 640MB
  • Power Supply: Mushkin 650watt Modular power supply
  • Hard Drive:  2 x WD 250GB 16MB cache SATA
  • Opticals: BenQ DW-1655 Lightscribe DVD-R, Sony DVD-ROM, Plextor 755a
  • O/S : Windows XP Service Pack 2

 

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: 512MB

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

 

Lower is Better

 

WinRAR is a tool to archive and compress large files to a manageable size. We will use 10MB, 100MB and 500MB files and test the time needed to compress these files. Time will be measured in seconds.
