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.

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.

 

Throughout the SpecView testing, MSI's Platinum can't quite keep up with the higher end motherboards from Asus and MSI, although it still does reasonably well. In PCMark Vantage, the Platinum has trouble hanging out with the other boards. Fortunately, overclocking lets it catch up and best the performance charts.
