Asus P7P55D EVO P55 Motherboard - Performance Revealed

Multimedia & Encoding



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.
 
 
 

 
 
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 raw video into Windows Media, Quicktime and Gif formats. As always, a total of 5 benchmark runs were performed with the highest and lowest scores removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 scores.
 
 
 
 

 
 
7-Zip is an open source Winzip-style file compression utility that has the ability to compress and decompress many file formats including its 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.
  
 
 
 
Results Observations

In our tests, Sandra placed the i5 setup at the bottom of the pack in all 3 of it's benchmarks with the i7 and AM3 setups exchanging blows. ViMark was a different story with that benchmark placing the i5 testbed above that of the i7 with the AM3 having the very slight advantage. 7 Zip showed the i5 setup again to be superior to the i5 but overall the above benchmarks place the AM3 setup at the top of the pile with regards to our multimedia and encoding tests.

Let's move on to our synthetic 3D Benchmarks...

Asus P7P55D EVO P55 Motherboard - Performance Revealed

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.

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

how long till it gets released?

Hi Jim.

Nice review about the new motherboard.

It's pleasure to be a part of your forum. I love to try also what you are discussing here. Thanks!
