Abit AB9 P965 Conroe Motherboard
Test Results - Cinebench and HD Tach
Cinebench is a benchmarking tool based on the powerful 3D software Cinema 4D. Consequently, the results of tests conducted using Cinebench carry significant weight when analyzing a computer’s performance in everyday use. Let's see how the AB9 gets on in this test.
The CPU rendering results here show that the Abit once again keeps up with the higher priced and higher range Intel Bad Axe board. Minimal differences in the results are again pretty impressive.
This test is showing us the difference in GPU performance in rendering rather than CPU rendering. However it still proves that the Abit is a very competitive board.HD Tach
HDTach is a free hard disk benchmarking program from SimpliSoftware
. This benchmark is not only capable of producing results on hard disk access times but also CPU usage required during disk access. It simply tests the hard drives in a nice quick and easy test.
NB: The Intel Result is with a SATA 1 drive.
Interesting the CPU utilisation is lower on the AB9 than on the Intel board. Whilst I am ignoring the Intel result for burst speed, a burst speed of 212.3 is a little lower than the same Hitachi 7K160 has got on an NForce4 platform motherboard.
