Now we get into our testings. Today we have compared our Foxconn G33M motherboard to our tried and true Gigabyte P35-DQ6 motherboard using stock and overclocked speeds. Overclocked specs were 528MHz x 6 on our DQ6 and 438MHz x 7 on our Foxconn. We used our usual suite of tests and also decided to run them on the onboard GMA3100 graphics chip to see how well it performs.

EVEREST Ultimate Edition is an industry leading system diagnostics and benchmarking solution for enthusiasts PC users, based on the award-winning EVEREST Technology. During system optimizations and tweaking it provides essential system and overclock information, advanced hardware monitoring and diagnostics capabilities to check the effects of the applied settings. CPU, FPU and memory benchmarks are available to measure the actual system performance and compare it to previous states or other systems.
At stock speed using the discrete graphics, the two chipsets are identical in memory performance. P35 and G33's memory controllers are identical in design, resulting in great memory scores on both platforms. When the onboard graphics is used, we see a drop in memory performance due to the graphics card sucking system memory and bandwidth for its UMA setup.
When the overclocking comes into the equation, the G33 falls behind as it's not able to keep up with the higher FSB result of the P35 DQ6.
