ECS Black Series A990FXM-A Review




Using Apophysis, a special OCC fractal will be rendered at 2750x2048 with a quality of 500 and RAM usage limited to 512MB. A lower render time is better.










A special selection of files is used with WinRAR to measure performance by compressing the files in 100MB and 500MB chunks in both ZIP and RAR format. A lower compression time is better.


Geekbench 2.1:

Geekbench's 'Benchmark' test suite will be used to obtain an overall system score. A higher score 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. Lower conversion time is better.



Overall, a little faster in general, with some slight trading of paint.
