GIGABYTE P67A-UD7 (Intel P67 Express) Motherboard - Synthetic Tests - Part III

With Sandy Bridge having lifted off of the launch pad, we are now taking a look at the platform that will put it into the upper layers of the market - the P67 in GIGABYTE style.

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.

The P67A-UD7 comes out on top again with some very impressive scores. We are pretty sure that we will see even more from this board in the rest of our testing.

 


3DMark 11

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.1

For synthetic gaming tests we used the industry standard and overlockers bragging tool 3DMark 11. 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 11 uses the DX11 API in addition to having support for Physics run from the CPU, not PhysX. This puts things on a semi neutral ground as neither GPU can gain an advantage from proprietary code.

Although it is the only CPU in the test pool, we have a feeling that once we start pushing out other numbers the P67A-UD7 will still come in right around the top in this new benchmark.

 


Cinebench R11. 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.

The P67A-UD7 is on top in Cinebench for both stock and overclocked performance. We were anticipating this with some of the other performance numbers we saw earlier.
