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.












Lower is Better


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.

The Apophysis and WinRar numbers show that when a motherboard is equipped with the same parts your results will be similar. Although, the Sapphire Pure Black X58 was at least 40 seconds faster than the closest board's time. In GeekBench it delivers scores that exceed those of some pretty strong boards at stock speeds and still is near the top with a slightly lower overclock.
