Testing:

 

Let's 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: 2750 x 2048
  • 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 100MB and 500MB files to test the time needed to compress these files. Time will be measured in seconds. 

 

ZIP:

 

Lower is Better

 

 

RAR:

 

Lower is Better

 

Geekbench:

Higher is Better

 

Bibble 5:

Lower is Better

 

Overall, the E350N performed very well. In Apophysis, its performance couldn't quite match Sapphire's Fusion board, even when overclocked. In WinRAR, it handily beat the other boards on the ZIP tests, but didn't fair as well on the more intense RAR tests. The E350N was really able to stretch its power in the Geekbench and Bibble 5 tests. I was quite surprised to see how big of a difference the overclock made in all four benchmarks.
