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 we again see the board line up with the other boards we've looked at. Overclocked, though, we again see a strong boost in performance which sees the board ahead of the Z68 Extreme4 from ASRock which managed to clock just a little bit slower.

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.




At stock we're seeing the board performs in line with the ASRock Z68 Extreme4 which is a little better than the larger MSI Z68A-GD80. Overclocked. we continue to see that strong performance boost which sees a good chunk of time shaved off our AutoGK results.
