Lowest Prices


I will be running the Abit IP35-E through a series of benchmarks to show what kind of performance you can expect from this motherboard. I will compare its performance against a few of the current motherboards and chipsets out on the market today. Included in the comparison will be both an Nvidia 680i chipset, as well as the Intel 965, the P35 chipset's predecessor. I will be using a combination of real world testing applications, as well as several games to show a broad snapshot of what this board is capable of. 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 set-up defaults, again eliminating any variables.


Testing Setup:

  • CPU stock: Intel E6700 Core 2 Duo 266x10
  • CPU overclocked:  Intel E6700 Core 2 Duo  355x10
  • Motherboard: IP35-E
  • 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: Gigabyte 965p-ds3
  • 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

  • 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 to: 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





It looks like the IP35-E is off to a good start. In a tie for number one or leading the way in WinRar.
