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.
Now these are some impressive numbers. Getting in the high 18K range at stock speeds is something very impressive. It looks like the WS would make a great all around productivity product.
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.
Once again the P8P67 WS delivers strong numbers. We can take this as a positive sign that we might get some decent gaming performance out of this board. Of course, as this is a synthetic, it is not the whole picture.
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 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.
Not too bad again. In Cinebench R11.5 the WS Revolution is out in front for both stock and overclocked performance. In fact, in our overclocked testing we are coming close to hitting the coveted 10 Point mark.
