Abit IN9 32x Max Intel Socket 775 Motherboard

Test Reults - Cinebench and HD Tach

CineBench CPU Rendering

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 analysing a computer’s performance in everyday use. The abit should perform on par with the rest of the boards here in theory.

Performing slightly below the rest of the motherboards on show, the abit seems to be slightly slower here.


Cinebench Graphics Benchmark (OpenGL)

Cinebench's test of OpenGL rendering is taxing on even the fastest systems.

The IN9 Max seems to be very effective when doing anything to do with graphics hardware, but lacks the punch when it comes to software performance. Certainly interesting results.


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.

The abit board is slightly behind the other boards in hard drive performance, although maintains the low CPU utilisation during the testing.

Overall the abit seems to perform the best in tests that relate to graphics hardware, something to bear in mind if you're a gamer.

Great review Kemp, nice bunch of packaging akin to the rocketboy type of stuffz. I do wish the µguru thing was more of a 5.25 bay thingy tbh. Last time I checked, retailers were ramming these devices down peoples throats for like £11 or so - which amazes me why u never had one in the box ?!?

I would hope these good results will boost a tad more after some bios revisions, board to board I`d expect this one to be a bit better than shown - but meh..

Kewl, I recognize some of those photos too Quote

Excellent review as usual mate. The 680i's are toasty little sods for sure, and it's a pity that abit didn't even provide some form of active cooling to try and address the problem. Well done Quote
