Test System

Processor: AMD Phenom x4 9850 (2.5GHz)

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

Hard Disk: 500GB Western Digital SE16 (Supplied by Western Digital)

Graphics Card: GIGABYTE 9800 GX2 (Supplied by GIGABYTE)

Cooling: GIGABYTE 3D Galaxy II (Supplied by GIGABYTE)

Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista SP1

Drivers: Forceware 175.16, Catalyst 8.5

Today we have put the AMD 780Gs from both ASUS and ASRock against the 790FX board from ASUS which we have already tested.

Our system has been upgraded to Vista SP1 since our Last Phenom tests were run, along with a new 9800 GX2 graphics card. This will allows us to get some better results overall and take some stress off the GPU.

We also performed onboard graphics tests on the two AMD 780G boards, as in today's market this is a very big part. Onboard is coming back, and how well the latest generation of iGPUs are able per perform makes a huge difference for some.

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.

First on the list are the memory subsystem tests. When using the IGP on both boards, the memory takes a hit due to 256MB of the total system memory being diverted to the graphics. When we move into discrete tests, all three platforms perform the same due to the memory controller being built into the CPU.
