For the Stability test I ran Orthos which is a dual Prime95 stress test, alongside dual Folding @ Home instances of the console client. To spice this up and really test the board I ran RTHDRIBL alongside this. This is a real test of the boards stability at stock and will show just how well my smooth installation really went. I also added an extra test to this board as it was rock solid: I added FRAPS writing FPS every second to file.
The board failed the stability testing after 7.5 hours. This is no great failure and 7 hours with this level of stress testing is still pretty decent. Running folding @ home was 100% stable over a week period and everything else ran fine at stock.
Super PI 1 million and 32 million
Super PI is 100% the only choice for a quick bench of your top-end rig. It gives a quick and easy estimate of the relative speed of your CPU. The C2D's are now infamous for the their very fast PI times. Will the abit compete with the top-end boards here?
Super PI 32million
A longer run of the Super PI benchmark shows stability and speed in a quick convenient test.
Processor Multimedia & Arithmetic
Processor Arithmetic tests the raw power of the CPU and the processor Multimedia tests the CPU in general multimedia tasks. There can be a slight difference shown between boards speed-wise.
The results are a little lower here, but not by a significant margin.
Memory Bandwidth and Latency
Core architecture has made the Intel platform perform much better than previous generations. SiSoft was always a benchmark that AMD dominated until Core came out.
