Testing:

I will be running the Abit IP35 through our benchmarking suite to show what kind of performance this motherboard delivers. The benchmarking suite we use includes both system tests, as well as gaming benchmarks. To make my performance comparisons, I will use not only the IP35-E, but also one of the NF 680i chipset motherboards on the market now, the XFX 680iLT. All clock speeds and memory timings will be the same on each of the boards to eliminate any variables. All video card settings were left at setup defaults, again eliminating any variables.

 

Testing Setup:

  • CPU stock: Intel E6700 Core 2 Duo 266x10
  • CPU overclocked:  Intel E6700 Core 2 Duo  405x9
  • Motherboard: IP35 "Dark Raider"
  • Memory: 2 x 1GB Mushkin XP9200 400FSB 5-4-4-12
  • Video Card(s): Evga 8800 GTS 640MB
  • Power Supply: Ultra X3 Modular Power supply
  • Hard Drive:2 x WD 250GB 16MB cache SATA
  • Opticals:   BenQ DW-1655 Lightscribe DVD-R, Sony DVD-ROM
  • O/S: Windows XP Service Pack 2

Comparison System:

  • CPU: Intel E6700 Core 2 Duo 266x10
  • Motherboard #2: XFX680I LT
  • Motherboard#3: Abit IP35- E
  • Memory: 2 x 1GB Mushkin XP9200 400FSB 5-4-4-12
  • Video Card(s): Evga 8800 GTS 640MB
  • Power Supply: Mushkin 650watt Modular power supply
  • Hard Drive: 2 x 74GB WD Raptors in raid 0,  2 x WD 250GB 16MB cache SATA
  • Opticals: BenQ DW-1655 Lightscribe DVD-R, Sony DVD-ROM, Plextor 755a
  • O/S : Windows XP Service Pack 2

 

The system tests we will be using are listed below:

  • Apophysis 2.2
  • PcMark 05 Professional
  • Sisoft Sandra XI
  • Sciencemark
  • Cinebench 9.5
  • HD Tach 3.1
  • SpecViewperf 9.0
  • WinRAR

Lets 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: 2750x2048
  • 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 10MB, 100MB and 500MB files and test the time needed to compress these files. Time will be measured in seconds
