Asus P6T Deluxe X58 OC Palm Edition Motherboard

Gaming Benchmarks

 
Crysis is without doubt one of the most visually stunning and hardware-challenging games to date. By using CrysisBench - a tool developed independently of Crysis - we performed a total of 5 timedemo benchmarks using a GPU-intensive pre-recorded demo. To ensure the most accurate results, the highest and lowest benchmark scores were then removed and an average calculated from the remaining three.
 
 

 
 
Company of Heroes is Relic's first title to make use of the "Essence Engine". This engine was designed and coded from scratch by Relic in order to make use of special graphical effects, including high dynamic range lighting, dynamic lighting & shadows, advanced shader effects and normal mapping. On May 29, 2007 Relic released a DX10 patch for Company of Heroes which was applied for this test.  Running the in game performance test 5 times, the highest and lowest scores were omitted with the average calculated from the remaining 3.

 
 


 


Ubisoft has developed a new engine specifically for Far Cry 2, called Dunia, meaning "world", "earth" or "living" in Parsi. The engine takes advantage of multi-core processors as well as multiple processors and supports DirectX 9 as well as DirectX 10. Running the Far Cry 2 benchmark tool the test was run 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being omitted and the average calculated from the remaining 3.

 

 
Results conclusions

I was as shocked as anybody to see the Nvidia/QX9770 based setup beating the P6T Deluxe/i7 920. I checked and triple checked all of the BIOS settings, sure that I must be missing something but everything was set and working as it should be. However, consideration should obviously be given to the fact that the QX9770 costs more than the whole of the i7 setup and if the range topping i7 965 CPU was used, it may have been a different story all together. Bang per buck at least, the Asus setup wins but I think these results have shown that there is still life left in skt775, albeit at a bigger cost than i7.

Let's take a look at the overall performance of the setups on test today...

Upgrade skt775 or go for broke and buy a major upgrade in the form of the P6T Deluxe. We pitch Asus's new motherboard against a high end skt 775 kit in todays full in-depth review.

Nice review mate..

Hopefully now that one is nailed down it'll be easier to review when more boards come.

Was that the maximum stable overclock you could get or were you just happy to get there and call it a day?Quote

Hi!

Great review, mate!

I was very astonished, that the s775 sometimes can match or even overrun the new socket. Nevertheless the new platform is a great performer, but I don't think that the time has come to upgrade to it, maybe next year . I would love to see how the new i7 performs against the new phenom 2 that are coming, because there are great things you hear about the overclocking performance of the new AMD's. Hope you will get a phenom 2 sample fast and compare these two.

And again, congrats for the great review.

Have a nice day.Quote
