Testing:

The first part of our testing will be the system-specific benchmarks.

 

Let's 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: 2750 x 2048
  • Quality: 500
  • Limit Memory use: 512MB

 

 

The measurement used is time to render, in minutes, to complete.

WinRAR is a tool to archive and compress large files to a manageable size. We will use 100MB and 500MB files to test the time needed to compress these files. Time will be measured in seconds. Additionally, I will use the built-in benchmark as a comparison.

Geekbench 2.1 provides a comprehensive set of benchmarks engineered to quickly and accurately measure processor and memory performance. Designed to make benchmarks easy to run and easy to understand, Geekbench takes the guesswork out of producing robust and reliable benchmark results.

 

 

Higher is Better

 

Bibble 5:

Bibble 5 will be used to convert 100 RAW 8.2MP images to JPEG. Total conversion time was recorded in seconds.

In the ZIP section, the new boards were hanging around the middle and end of the heard, with the Sniper 2 able to come back towards the front of the pack during the 1000MB stock testing. During the RAR testing section, all three of the boards were able to come up towards the front. In the Geekbench testing at stock speeds, the Sniper 2 did better than the Z68XP-UD4 and the Sapphire board, however the Z68XP-UD4 was able to make up some ground during the overclocked testing. The Sniper 2 came up in first place during the overclocked testing.
