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 10 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. Cinebench recently distributed release 10. In order to keep pace with newer hardware, this benchmark will be used to further stress the components in each test system. Because this is a new addition, we will test only the hardware currently being reviewed. The results will be both stock and overclocked.
Higher is Better
HD Tune measures disk performance to make comparisons between drives or disk controllers.
Lower is Better
Performance across the system suite of benchmarks is comparable, some of the results are within a margin of error while others are clearly superior. Let's move to the gaming benchmarks to see if the performance continues to be close or if the P31 chipset has some more in the tank.
