Asus P7P55D EVO P55 Motherboard - Performance Revealed

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.
 
 


 
Call of Duty 4 is a stunning DirectX 9.0c based game that really looks awesome and has a very full feature set. With lots of advanced lighting, smoke and water effects, the game has excellent explosions along with fast game play. Using the in-built Call Of Duty features, a 10-minute long game play demo was recorded and replayed on each of the GPU's using the /timedemo command a total of 5 times. The highest and lowest FPS results were then removed, with an average being calculated from the remaining 3 results.
 
 
 


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 Analysis
 
The AMD setup came top in two of the gaming tests which shows just how far AMD have progressed recently. The Core i5 setup came bottom of the pile in both Call of Duty IV and Far Cry 2 with only a very slim escape in Crysis. Gaming it appears is not the Intel mid range CPU's strongest point.
 
Let's take a look at it's overall performance with a run of PCMark Vantage 64bit...

Hmmm. Needing some more details on the 6g sata situation as it unfolds.

According to the hdtach in the review, the controller used appears nothing to write home about.

Really nice low power consumption on idle.

8x - 8x won't make some people happy. Couldn't care less about that myself.

An opinion on the VIA HD sound would be interesting.

In all, being the launch of a new socket and all, not much impressing me here.

Roll on stable 6g and USB3.0 imo.

Rumor had it Gigabyte had sorted something out with the marvell and it would appear ASRock are supplying pcie cards for it.

Yeah the PCIe cards are SATA 6G and they use the same controller. The problem is with PATA support so as the PCIe card does notsupport PATA the problem is null and void.

It won't be long before we see full 6G support and I agree, the ommision of USB 3.0 is disappointing. Let's hope the 2nd round of boards have these features fully supported.

Nice review, but would like to know more detail about memory overclocking performance, such as the highest clock or required voltage, instead of only bandwidth testing.
