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.
Another good showing from the P8P67 Deluxe. It places just behind the WS Revolution. This would seem to indicate that it is a good board for general computing.
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 CPU based Physics. Gone are the days of the PhysX inclusion giving you inflated scores.
Hmmm, things look fairly close here as far as final scores go. If you look at the Physics performance, things are a little different, but again not by much. The P8P67 Deluxe is at the top, though.
Cinebench R11. 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.
For Cinebench the P8P67 Deluxe does a great job and falls into line just behind the WS Revolution again.
