Building a DIY All-in-One PC with GIGABYTE's H77TN Thin Mini-ITX Motherboard - CPU Benchmarks

Building a DIY All-in-One PC with GIGABYTE's H77TN Thin Mini-ITX Motherboard
The All-in-One PC is going to be a big part of computing in the coming years. We take our first look at building one DIY style with GIGABYTE's brand new H77TN Thin Mini-ITX motherboard.

HyperPi is a front end for SuperPi that allows for multiple concurrent instances of SuperPi to be run on each core recognized by the system. It is very dependent on CPU to memory to HDD speed. The faster these components, the faster it is able to figure out the number Pi to the selected length.

 

For our testing we use the 32M run. This means that each of the four physical and four logical cores for the i7 and the four physical cores of the i5 is trying to calculate the number Pi out to 32 million decimal places. Each "run" is a comparative to ensure accuracy and any stability or performance issues in the loop mentioned above will cause errors in calculation.

Replacing Everest in our labs is AIDA64. This new testing suite is from the core development team from Lavalys and continues that tradition. The guys have thrown in better support for multithreaded CPUs as well as full 64 bit support. We use this to test memory and HDDs for now, but may find ourselves opening this up to other areas of the motherboard.

HyperPi performance is strong and lines up with the Z77 options. We thought it would be a little slower due to the reduced RAM speed, but as you can see above, there's little difference between all three setups.

 

AIDA64 CPU numbers also look good. L3 speeds in both read and write are slightly down, but apart from that, our numbers line up fairly evenly.
