GIGABYTE P35T-DQ6 (DDR3) Reviewed - Test System Setup and Memory Performance

After checking out GIGABYTE's Dual Quad series P35-DQ6 recently, we now have the DDR3 version on the table.

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

 

Memory: 2x 1GB DDR2-1066 Corsair, 2x 1GB Corsair Dominator DDR3 1800MHz (Supplied by Corsair)

 

Hard Disk: 500GB Seagate 7200.9 (Supplied by Seagate Australia)

 

Graphics Card: 2x MSI RD1950 Pro in Crossfire (Supplied by MSI)

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2

 

Drivers: Intel INF 8.3.0.1013, ATI catalyst 7.7

 

Today's test bed goes back to us running twin X1950 Pros in Crossfire mode. We wanted to see if the extra bandwidth of DDR3 in its stock speed form of 1066MHz is able to beat out the P35 running DDR2 800MHz. Our usual array of tests are put on show along with a new one, power usage. That's right, we have another power thingy for the motherboard test beds and will be including that from now on.

 

Let's delve right into the tests shall we?
