Page 3 Performance

03/03/05

 

Performance:

     When it comes to performance there are a few things to consider, one is speed or flat out benchmark results, and two is more difficult to explain. That is the overall stability or how well does the PC run. The first part is easy to measure. I tend to use several synthetic utilities designed to measure performance on an even playing field. Bellow you will see these results. We used Futuremark's PCMark04 and Passmark's Performance Test 6.0 both of these tools are very reliable and easy to use.

 

     The second part of performance, Stability I try and measure by running multiple load tests and auto surfing utilities let them run for a few days nonstop and see what happens. If things are good nothing will happen but if there are hardware or software issues then anything from lockup's to image defects can cause the PC to function improperly.. I did this to The ASRocks PC and I can attest that this PC after all the load tools where turn off performed just as well as it did prior to running the load tests. That makes for a good product. As you will see I used a very old yet stable video card a NVIDIA 5200 GT from BFG that is my personal favorite for bas stability it has been on the market for years and very little negative can be said other then maybe it being slow to today's standards. All and all this Motherboard did what it was supposed to with no lockups or problems. I definitely recommend this board for stability.. I will even be using this board in future tests when comparing video cards due to the multiple video options making this board not only varsity but stable to boot.

Performance Test 6.0

Benchmark Results

     I did not use a comparison for this set of these because this will probably be a baseline for future testing and other product will be measured using this CPU and setup.. Also note the graphics results are a bit low but that is expected with a 5200 vid card but this testing was by design and the results are solid.

     3DMark is one of my favorite tools for synthetic benchmarking above are the base system results bellow will be a comparison to other PC's using similar CPU's and graphics cards. Seeing this is my baseline as mentioned earlier this is not the best set of comparisons but you will see many other more detailed results in future reviews..

 

 

Future Mark

 PCMark04

 

     The PCMark results however are compared to very similar setups and overwhelmingly the ASRock performs as well if not better to products of the same class. Here is a detailed comparison you can judge for yourself..
