For our testing purposes here today we put the ASUS Commando up against our current test bed motherboard here at TweakTown for the P965 systems, that being the Gigabyte P965-QD6. It board had proven to be stable and extremely fast in the past but has it finally met its match or better?
Stock speeds were run along with highest FSB. We lowered the CPU multiplier to 6x for both boards when it came to highest FSB. This gave us 6 x 507MHz FSB for a total of 3042MHz on the ASUS Commando and 6 x 497MHz FSB on the Gigabyte P96-DQ6 which gave us 2982MHz.
Now let's get into the benchmarks and see who comes out on top.

The ASUS Commando only just pulls ahead of the Gigabyte board since there isn't that much difference in the clock speeds - CPU and FSB, that is.
