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 Cinebench, the X48T-DQ6 is outperformed by the DDR2 version. The drive testing shows no difference because the boards are just about identical, in that both are using the ICH9 managed SATA ports to run the hard drives. In the system based benchmarks, the X48T-DQ6 came out on top or equal to the performance of the DDR2 version of the board in 27 out of 35 tests that were run. Kind of surprising when you look at all the negative feedback on DDR3 vs DDR2 performance comparisons. This takes it a step farther. If run with four gigabytes of DDR3, what would the results be? Let's see if the X48T-DQ6 can keep up its winning ways in the gaming benchmarks.
