Asus P7P55D EVO P55 Motherboard - Performance Revealed

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
In contrast to the synthetic 3D results, the EVO was placed behind the i7 setup. This was the case for all of the tests run with PCMark Vantage. Also running against what we have shown today was that the AMD setup was positioned in last place in the gaming test where our actual tests placed it in top spot. The encoding tests did however back up what we found in that the AM3 rig is superior at encoding, at least as far as x86 applications are concerned.
Let's head over to the conclusion where I attempt to put today's testing into perspective...

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.Quote

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.Quote

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.Quote

"and this is pure speculation my part" shouldnt there be an on in there?

how long till it gets released?Quote
