DFI Lanparty DK P45-T2RS Plus

Encoding and Compression

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, AVI 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.

 Result Observations
When it came to the encoding benchmarks, the performance of the boards were pretty much neck and neck. The deviation from this trend came during the Quicktime encoding tests, where the DK P45 actually came out on top. A similar trend to the CPU and memory benchmarks emerges in the compression & decompression tests, with the DK being a bit slower than the IP35.

I don't think i've seen a DFI board look so good since the 939 days...Quote

All I get from this tbh is there is absolutely no point in getting it if u have an IP35 Pro. Which in all honesty, including the other 2 mobos, is an absolute disgrace imo.

It also has ALC885 sound.. which is pretty old afaik.

I will say tho, for fear of sounding like a scratched record, I feel these 4 series Intel boards would probably perform better with newer cpus.

Good review, being truthful I`d overlook this unless I see it doing well with newer cpus.Quote
