Here is where we dig out the FutureMark tests.
The PCMark Vantage scores for the GA-890GPA-UD3H are a little bit of a letdown until we push the CPU to 4GHz. At that point we see it and the X4 965 pull ahead of the Core i5 661 on the H57.
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.
Unfortunately the 890GPA-UD3H and its HD 4290 are not able to keep up in 3DMark Vantage. It is not by a large margin, but it is still there.
Cinebench R11.5 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. Beginning with this review we are moving to the new R11.5 version of Cinebench. This software improves both the GPU based OpenGL rendering test and the CPU based image render. It provides a much better test for multi-core, multi-threaded CPUs and once again changes the scoring routine.
Our scores are interesting and something that has become a pattern is showing up by now. With a discrete GPU in the system it seems that overall board performance is suffering. This has been a common trend so far in our testing and again is showing up in Cinebench R11.5.
