Asus Crosshair III Formula vs DFI DK 790FXB M3H5 Face-Off

PCMark Vantage



PCMark Vantage is the latest benchmarking suite from Futuremark. Differing significantly from their 3DMark suites, PCMark performs a series of benchmarks designed to recreate and benchmark scenarios of a PC being used for everyday tasks. Vantage has a Vista only requirement as it actually relies on several different components from the OS in order to run correctly.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Results Analysis
 
Overall, the DFI DK 790FXB M3H5 appears to be favoured with the Asus board not too far behind. This is perhaps in contrast to our own run of benchmarks. Surprisingly, the Intel setup was left lagging behind in the majority of test run today. Once has to consider however that the Intel CPU is the entry level one and the AMD the range topping version. Price comparison though turns the tables upside down as the range topping AMD CPU is actually much cheaper than the i7 920.
 
Let's head over to the conclusion where I try to put my thoughts into some sort of order...

Have AMD made up any ground on Intel since we last checked them out? Find out as we pitch two AM3 motherboards against each other. You might be surprised!

Jeez I'm quite surprized tbh.

Excellent review.

Shame on DFI with some of their onboard choices ALC885 and Marvell ? c'mon - throw in the jumper and I'd expect the mobo to be cheaper.

The ASUS tho, even as the DFI kept up with it (and it can be assumed better with the model up), very very nice figures for the gamer.

Things are looking green whilst blue seems to want to confuse. Weird that cos in other respects AMD would be ... red Quote
