Overall System performance and Gaming
Here is where we dig out the FutureMark tests.
For overall system performance we use PCMark Vantage. This is run in both x86 and x64 mode to give the best indication of performance.
The ASUS P7P55D-E Pro comes in slightly behind the ASRock P55. But as we have found on more than one occasion, this does not mean it will not perform well in other common tasks.
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.
In 3DMark Vantage we again find the ASUS P7P55D-E Pro behind the ASRock P55. This one is more than a little interesting as they should be much closer than we saw. Still, a single test (and a synthetic one at that) is not the whole story.
Cinebench R10 x64
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.
The scores here are so very close, but in the end the ASUS P7P55D-E Pro does win out in all of the tests except for the multi-core rendering test.
Cinebench R11.5 x64
Beginning with this review, we are shifting to the new build of Cinebench. This new version offers an improved rendering test with over 2,000 objects for a total of 300,000 polygons for multicore CPUs (up to 64 cores total) and also a better OpenGL engine to see how well your GPU can process this real time information.
This is the first time we are using the new version of Cinebench with a motherboard review. We still see comparable scores for the CPU and GPU we are using.
