ASUS P7P55 WS SuperComputer (P55 Express) Motherboard - Synthetic Tests - Part III

We take a dive into an ASUS Workstation board complete with an 1156 Xeon to see how it holds up under pressure.

Here is where we dig out the FutureMark tests.

 


PCMark Vantage

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.0.0

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

All I have to say is, nice! - The P7P55 WS tops out both the stock and overclocked categories. Even with the memory bandwidth limited this board shines and pulls off a win.

 


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. As we are no longer using an NVIDIA GPU for testing (at least until we can get a GTX 4xx card) you will only see the CPU based PhysX results in the scores. For testing we use the Performance test run.

Another impressive showing from the P7P55 WS. Here even at stock speeds we see the WS outperform some of the other P55s while overclocked.

 


Cinebench R11.5 x64

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 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 R11.5 tests your systems ability to render across a single and multiple CPU cores. It also tests your systems ability to process OpenGL information.

We were not surprised to see the P7P55 WS/Xeon X3470 combo come in with a win here. After all, it has four more threads to play with than the Core i5 750.
