Asus ROG Crosshair IV Formula

CPU Performance

CPU Performance

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.

CPU Arithmetic

The CPU arithmetic test ascertains the processor's capabilities in terms of numerical operations. Two subtests named Dhrystone and Whetstone are carried out respectively. This is not a measure of latency and thus higher is better.

Right off the bat, the overclocked X4 is taking full advantage of it's 15% overclock, while at stock speeds the Crosshair IV Formula is running on par with it's 890GX based sibling.

CPU Multimedia

The CPU Multimedia Test focuses on CPU based operations that may occur during multimedia based tasks. The magnitude of the score depends on the processor's ability to handle Integer, Float and Double data types.

Once again, there is little separating the two 8 series motherboards, however the scores are both competitive and impressive never the less.

CPU Queen

CPU Queen is based on branch prediction and the misprediction penalties that are involved.

CPU Photoworxx

PhotoWorxx as the name may suggest tests processors by means of invoking functions that are common to Photo Manipulation including Fill, Flip, Crop, Rotate, Difference and Colour to B&W conversion.

CPU ZLib

This is an integer based benchmark that will test the CPU and Memory by means of the CPU ZLib compression library.

Throughout the Everest Ultimate Edition suite, it can be said that the scores are right where they should be for a Phenom II X4 965 CPU. The scores themselves are very respectable and suggests that the 965 Black is fair CPU to use for a high end system such as this.

WinRAR

WinRAR's embedded Benchmark focuses on the processor's File Compression capability.

File Compression is a very important function and one would hate performance to be lacking in this department. Thankfully it isn't as once again the two 890 series boards perform on par with each other and a significant performance boost is exhibited from the overclock.

Wow, this is cheap for a ROG and that is, if it does turn out to launch around this price.

I suspect the Extreme would be more, am guessing around ~£200?Quote
