ASUS P7H57D-V EVO (H57 Express) Motherboard - Synthetic Tests - Part I

As the "perform-a-like" H55 and H57 boards hit the shelves, ASUS tries to stand out with their P7H57D-V EVO with USB 3.0 and SATA 3.0.

With any system you will want to see a combination of synthetic testing and real-world. Synthetics give you a static, easily repeatable testing method that can be compared across multiple platforms. For our synthetic tests we use Everest Ultimate, Sisoft Sandra, Futuremark's 3DMark Vantage and PCMark Vantage, Cinebench as well as HyperPi. Each of these covers a different aspect of performance or a different angle of a certain type of performance.

 


Memory Bandwidth

 

Memory is a big part of current system performance. In most systems slow or flakey memory performance will impact almost every type of application you run. To test memory we use a combination of Sisoft Sandra, Everest and HyperPi 0.99.

The memory performance on the ASUS P7H57D-V EVO is a hair better than the stock performance on other H5x boards we have seen. When we overclocked the CPU we also received a boost in the memory performance as well, but still not more than what you would expect from the H5x chipset.

Everest Ultimate is a suite of tests and utilities that can be used for system diagnostics and testing. For our purposes here we use their memory bandwidth test and see what the theoretical performance is.

Overclocked Memory Performance

 

Again we see what we have come to expect from the H5x boards and the new IGP on the Core CPUs.

HyperPi is a front end for SuperPi that allows for multiple concurrent instances of SuperPi to be run on each core recognized by the system. It is very dependent on CPU to memory to HDD speed. The faster these components, the faster it is able to figure out the number Pi to the selected length.

 

For our testing we use the 32M run. This means that each of the two physical and two logical cores for the i5 are trying to calculate the number Pi out to 32 million decimal places. Each "run" is a comparative to ensure accuracy and any stability or performance issues in the loop mentioned above will cause errors in calculation.

The ASUS P7H57D-V EVO manages to perform quite well here with times that beat the other two H5x boards that we have tested.
