Asus P5E3 Deluxe WiFi-AP @n Socket 775 Motherboard
ViMark is the latest addition to the OC3D motherboard testing process and a relatively new benchmarking application in general. Designed to take the inaccuracies and guesswork out of measuring the time taken to encode video files, ViMark produces easily comparable and consistent results for encoding Windows Media, Quicktime, AVI and GIF files.
ViMark shows that the P5E3 is round about in the middle of both previously tested boards, not much of a difference between them all here.
7-Zip is an open source winzip-style file compression utility that has the ability to compress and decompress many file formats including it's own .7z compression scheme. 7-Zip also comes complete with its own benchmarking utility for gauging the compression and decompression speed of the system that it is installed on.
7-Zip shows a decent performance increase on the P5E3, again perhaps due to the DDR3 used on this board.
