DFI Lanparty LT X38-T2R Motherboard

Compression & Encoding Benchmarks

ViMark
 
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.
 
X38-T2R ViMark Windows Media
 
X38-T2R ViMark Apple Quicktime
 
X38-T2R ViMark AVI
 
X38-T2R ViMark GIF
 
 
7-Zip
 
7-Zip is an open source winzip-style file compression utility that has the ability to compress and decompress many file formats including it's 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
 
Once again, a pretty even playing field for all of the boards on test with the ViMark application requiring significant differences in performance in order to sway the results. 7-Zip on the other hand did show a slight preference for the X38-T2R in the compression benchmark.

"Some of DFI's previous Lanparty branded boards have reached almost iconic status. Will their latest X38 based board be able to meet our expectations?"

Yeah quality review Jim as ever.. That board does look swish! And preforms as well to it seems.

Shame there isn't better availability over here

Looks nice but a tad late in my opinion with the X48 boards coming out soon and no real gains over the T2R Ive got.

why not try overclock dual-core cpu (e6550, e6750 etc) with the board. to make sure it really is q6600's fsb wall and not motherboards. Just a suggestion.

No chips to hand i'm afraid. I've got two Q6600's and an E4300 floating about at the moment, and the E4300 maxes out at 375fsb lol.

Don't worry tho, you'll probably be seeing a lot more unofficial results form this board when the QX9650 arrives.

It looks like it might be a little while before these bouards are available in the UK, but I've been passed information that they should be available at these places:

States: Motherboardpro

Germany: Alternate

Having owned/tested pretty much all of DFI's Intel boards, I would say that this is the closest to how I remember my old NF4 being
