ASRock sure are pumping out boards lately & they're clearly a big supporter of AMD. On the table today we have the first AMD 770 based board in hand.

Overall System performance and Gaming

 

Here is where we dig out the FutureMark tests followed by CINEBENCH.

For overall system performance we use PCMark Vantage; this is run in both x86 and x64 mode to give the best indication of performance.

Moving into synthetic system tests we see that the AMD 770 ASRock board is quite competitive.

 


3DMark Vantage

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.1

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.

Under synthetic gaming we see that the ASRock 770 chipset board only falls behind when overclocking.

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.

Last on our synthetic tests we see that the AMD 770 board isn't that far behind at the overclocking stages.
