Sapphire Pure Black X58 Motherboard - CPU Benchmarks - Continued

Sapphire begins to move away from just video cards with a new performance motherboard. How's the Pure Black X58 perform?

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 four physical and four logical cores for the i7 and the four physical cores of the i5 is 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.

At stock speeds we can see that the Pure Black X58 performs a little quicker. At 4.4GHz, though, you can see that big performance boost we get under these CPU benchmarks.

AutoGK stands for Auto Gordian Knot; it is a suite of transcoding tools that are compiled into an easy to install and use utility. It allows you to transcode non-protected DVDs and other media to Xvid or Divx format. For our testing purposes we use a non-DRM restricted movie that is roughly 2 hours in length. This is transcoded to a single Xvid AVI at 100% quality.

Encoding a movie, we can see the Sapphire Pure Black X58 runs a little faster and we again continue to see that strong performance gain given when we crank up our CPU speed.
