Here is where we dig out the FutureMark tests.

PCMark Vantage

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.0.0

For overall system performance we use PCMark Vantage. This is run in both x86 and x64 mode to give the best indication of performance.

The P67A-UD4 was at the bottom of the P67 boards we have tested. This was a little disappointing, but to be honest, the performance is still better than many boards in the same price range.

3DMark 11

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.1

For synthetic gaming tests we used the industry standard and overlockers bragging tool 3DMark 11. This is a test that strives to mimic the impact modern games have on a system. Futuremark went a long way to change from the early days of graphics driven tests to a broader approach including physics, AI and more advanced graphics simulations. 3DMark V11 uses the DX11 API in addition to having support for CPU based Physics. Gone are the days of the PhysX inclusion giving you inflated scores.

Interestingly enough we find the UD4 at the top of the list for 3DMark11. This could be a good indicator for gamers that might be thinking about this board for a lower cost system.

Cinebench R11. x64

Version and / or Patch Used: R11.5 x64

Cinebench is a synthetic rendering tool developed by Maxon. Maxon is the same company that developed Cinema4D, another industry leading 3D Animation application. Cinebench R11.5 tests your systems ability to render across a single and multiple CPU cores. It also tests your systems ability to process OpenGL information.

The scores for Cinebench are close; VERY close. If you take a look you can see that the difference between most of the boards is only a single point. Of course, you cannot tell the whole story from a single synthetic test, so let's see what happens once we kick in the real-world tests.
