ASRock M3A785GXH/128M Motherboard - Mainstream 785G Tested - Synthetic Tests - Part III

Our first AMD 785G chipset board was Micro-ATX and now we are starting to see mainstream ATX boards - ASRock has its latest instalment for us.

Overall System performance and Gaming

 

Here is where we dig out the FutureMark tests.

For overall system performance we use PCMark Vantage.

Both platforms perform identical to each other when at stock speeds, however overclocking gives a boost to our new ASrock motherboard.

 


For synthetic gaming tests we used the industry standard and overlockers bragging tool 3DMark Vantage. This is a test that strives to mimic the impact modern games have on a system. FutureMark went a long way to change from the early days of graphics driven tests to a broader approach including physics, AI, and more advanced graphics simulations. 3DMark Vantage uses the DX10 API in addition to having support for PhysX. Due to the PhysX support and our use of an nVidia GPU we run with PhysX enabled and disabled to give you the best indication of real system performance. For testing we use the Performance test run.

Here we have our synthetic gaming tests, during these tests we ran with PhysX enabled to take as much load of the CPU as possible.

 


Cinebench R10 x64

 

Version and / or Patch Used: R10

Cinebench is a synthetic rendering tool developed by Maxon. Maxon is the same company that developed Cinema4D another industry leading 3D Animation application. Cinebench R10 tests your systems ability to render across a single and multiple CPU cores. It also tests your systems ability to process OpenGL information.

Here we get a pretty good view of the systems in rendering mode. The two boards are just about identical in stock mode, but when we overclock, the ASRock 785G manages a bit more of an effort.
