Testing:

Specview 10 is a benchmark designed to test OpenGL performance. I will be using the multi-threaded tests to measure the performance when run in this mode. The tests used for comparison are listed below. The default multi-threaded tests were chosen to be able to compare across platforms. In these tests, higher scores equate to better performance. Since the E8400 is a Dual core CPU results will only be shown in the 2 thread test.

  • MAYA
  • PROE

PcMark Vantage is used to measure complete system performance. We will be running a series of tests to gauge performance of each individual board to see which board, if any, rises above the others.

 

The QX9770 is closest to the performance ofe the Core I7 processors. In Specview the newest architecture outperforms the old in almost every test with even the 2.66GHz 920 taking on the QX9770 and exceeding its performance. I'm sure the SSD drive helped in PCMark Vantage, but this would not account for the large margin in and of itself. So far the new technology is proving superior to the old.
