ASUS Maximus II Formula P45 Motherboard
CPU and Memory Benchmarks
SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a PC. Each of the benchmarks below were run a total of five times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average being calculated from the remaining three.
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. Each of these benchmarks were performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average calculated from the remaining 3.
As all the motherboards on test are based around the P45 chipset, it comes as no surprise that all of the scores are very similar. However, it is noticeable that the Maximus II falls behind in the majority of the tests, albeit by a very small margin. Consideration also has to be given to the MSI board, which utilises DDR3 as opposed to the two Asus boards, which use DDR2.
