Asus Blitz Extreme P35 Socket 775 Motherboard

Results - SuperPI & HD Tach


SuperPI is the benchmark of choice for many overclockers. It's lightweight to download and can give a quick indication on how good a system is at number crunching.

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.

Result Observations

With SuperPI results being heavily dependant on memory and CPU performance it's no surprise to see the Blitz Extreme pulling ahead of the pack (albeit by a small margin) in the 1m and 16m results. This is more than likely thanks to the Blitz's superior performance in the Sisoft Sandra and Everest memory benchmarks over the previous page.

HD Tach also reported healthy performance figures for a single 7200RPM hard disk setup, and the Blitz sits comfortably in with the rest of the results as expected.

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
