Testing:

ScienceMark tests real world performance instead of using synthetic benchmarks. For this test, we ran the benchmark suite and will use the overall score for comparison.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

  

 

 

Higher is Better!

 

CineBench is useful for testing your system, CPU and OpenGL capabilities using the software program CINEMA 4D. We will be using the default tests for this benchmark.

 

Higher is Better

 

HD Tune measures disk performance to make comparisons between drives or disk controllers.

In Sciencemark, the Gigabyte was within 3 points of the MSI P55-GD65. The results in Cinebench show that the single threaded test shows very little change from board to board, while there is more stratification in the multi-threaded test. In HDTune, the burst speed was identical to the results of the ASUS offering, while the average read scores were the top in the class. The P55 boards at stock clock speeds, for the most part, offer identical performance. I saw the same thing when benchmarking X58 and P35 Intel chipset motherboards. The main differences are seen when you overclock the processor and memory. If you don't overclock (Why not) then the feature set and pricing will be the big determining factors in purchasing a motherboard.
