Abit IP35 Pro Intel socket 775 Motherboard
Author: Matt Kemp
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 how well it would run in a situation where the board was being stressed to the limit.
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. The IP35 Pro goes up against our previous results here.
A longer run of the Super PI benchmark shows stability and speed in a quick convenient 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 Core2Duo came out. The IP35 should do pretty well here as we have seen good results from other P35 based boards.
The P35 chipset of the Abit IP35 Pro is showing that it gets some good numbers for memory bandwidth.
