TweakTown Rating: 90%Manufacturer: ASUS

Test System


Processor: Intel Core 2 Extreme Q6800 @ 3GHz (9x333MHz)


Memory: 2x 1GB DDR2-1186 Geil (Supplied by Geil)


Hard Disk: 500GB Seagate 7200.9 (Supplied by Seagate Australia)


Graphics Card: 2 MSI X1950Pro In Crossfire (Supplied by MSI)


Cooling: Stock Intel Heatsink


Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2


Drivers: Intel INF, ATI Catalyst 7.9


Our test systems consist of a Crossfire setup since this is where the ASUS Blitz Formula and Blitz Extreme boards are designed to beat out other P35 boards, this simply because of their dual x8 bandwidth off the northbridge rather than having to go through the southbridge for the second card. Our test systems ran at 3GHz stock using the 9x multiplier and 1333MHz FSB. At overclocked speeds we saw the boards running a 6x multiplier with GIGABYTE using a 521MHz FSB and the ASUS a 527MHz FSB, very little in it really.

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.




ASUS' Blitz Formula equals the GIGABYTE board at standard clocks and just manages a few extra points in the overclocking results; since both are running almost equal overclocked speeds we didn't expect much here.
