ASUS P8Z68-V Pro (Intel Z68) Motherboard Review - CPU Benchmarks Continued

Our first ASUS Z68 board arrives and we don't waste any time. Let's see what the P8Z68-V Pro brings to the table.

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 there's no real surprise when it comes to the performance of the board. As we climb up in speed, though, you can see our performance of course becomes stronger and stronger as the ASUS offering is able to take the fastest Pi run thanks to that largest overclock.

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.

You can see how much time we're able to shave off our encoding as the clocks of our 2600k head north. There's really quite a big difference between 49 minutes and 33 minutes, especially when you start thinking about doing multiple conversions.
