Jetway HI09-Z (Intel Z68) Motherboard Review - CPU Benchmarks Continued

It's been ages since we've seen anything from Jetway. Let's take the time today to see what they're up to with this Z68 board.

| Socket LGA 1155 in Motherboards | Posted: Jul 20, 2011 4:31 am
Manufacturer: Jetway

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.

Looking under Hyper PI we can again see that the motherboard performance lines up as we'd want it to, and while we had to run higher voltage on the system to get it stable, it's not like performance is worse than other motherboards; it's just that we had to do a bit of mucking around to get everything running stable. Unfortunately this isn't something you want to be doing with a motherboard.

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.

We can again see under AutoGK performance is again on par with our other systems. As we said, it's not that it's slow, it's just that it didn't want to play nice out of the box.
