Abit IN9 32x Max Intel Socket 775 Motherboard
Published: 14th February 2007 | Source: Abit | Price: |Stability
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.
Unlike some of the previous boards the IN9 Max passed everything I threw at it at stock and then some. Very good work from abit in this department.
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 other 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 Arithmetic tests the raw power of the CPU and the processor multemedia tests the CPU in general multimedia tasks. There can be a slight difference shown between boards speedwise. With the board being a gamers board will the IN9 make mincemeat of the test?
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. The AW9D Max showed itself to be very competitive in our last tests, will the IN9 follow suite?
