Test System Setup

 

Processor: Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 (Supplied by Intel)

 

Memory: 2x 1GB DDR2-1066 Corsair at 1:1 ratio (Supplied by Corsair)

 

Hard Disk: 500GB Seagate 7200.9 SATA-II (Supplied by Seagate)

 

Graphics Card: MSI Radeon X1950 Pro (Supplied by MSI)

 

Cooling: Gigabyte Neon775 (Supplied by Gigabyte)

 

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2

 

Drivers: Intel INF nForce Platform Driver 9.53, ATI Catalyst 7.3 and DX9c

 

We ran our usual test suite with our boards at both stock and overclocked speeds.

 

Stock is using an 11x multiplier and a 266MHz FSB for a total of 2.93GHz and at overclocked speeds things differ.

 

Gigabyte's P35-DQ6 operated with a 7x multiplier and a FSB of 517MHz for a total CPU clock speed of 3.6GHz. DFI 650I Ultra operated with a 7x multiplier also and 438MHz FSB for a CPU grand total of 3.06GHz. Keep in mind the memory is always set at 1:1 which means the P35-DQ6 RAM is operating at PC2-8272 and DFI 650I Ultra RAM at PC2-7008.

 

Let's get started and see how things shape up here!

At stock speeds the P35 manages to stay ahead of the nForce 650i and unsurprisingly when overclocked it managed to go even further ahead.
