Asus Blitz Extreme P35 Socket 775 Motherboard

Results - Sisoft Sandra & Everest

Sisoft Sandra

Sisoft Sandra is a synthetic benchmark utility capable of reporting and benchmarking a wide range of system components. For the Blitz Extreme, P5K and P5K3 motherboards we run both the CPU, Memory and Disk benchmarks three times to ensure accuracy of results.

Everest is in many ways similar to Sisoft Sandra. Focusing mainly on Software and Hardware information reporting, Everest also comes with a benchmark utility suitable for testing the read, write and latency performance of the memory subsystem.

Result Observations

In the Sisoft Sandra and Everest memory benchmarks the Blitz Extreme totally walked over the P5K and P5K3 motherboards despite the P5K3 using the same memory modules at the same settings. It certainly seems that Asus have done some behind-the-scenes tweaking of the memory latencies on the Blitz to produce such impressive results.

As expected, the disk benchmarks for all 3 boards were identical. This is due to the P5K, P5K3 and Blitz all using the ICH9R southbride chipset for their primary SATA controllers.

I think ASUS fans will like this especially, for the reasons ionicle states. Though it does imply that this latest tweak will allow u to get that much more % of an oc.

Outside of this review, I`d like to see a study where some1 takes 1 set of a full pc hardware install, and install the OS on it a large number of times. Each time take the benchmarks like XMS has used, and find out how much a difference u get in terms of a % each time. It`ll be small, I`d think, but it would add proof to my thinking that one board beating another in a finite benchmark doesn`t necessarily mean anything, unless it goes over a %.

My theory being, u build a setup and install u`r OS fully and u`ll get 1 result. Next time around, wipe the drive, and re-install everything and u`r result will be off by a few %.Quote
