DFI Lanparty T3eH6 DK X58 Motherboard

Multimedia and 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
 
Multimedia encoding and compressing is something the i7 series of CPU excel at and as the results above show, no motherboard can show any significant gain or loss at the hands of another. All of the boards on test have performed well within the margins of error of each other and the DFI is no different.

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

"The DK series of DFI boards offer value for money yet bundles of performance. Can the X58 varient of the DK series follow suit or have DFI stripped too many goodies from the Ultra?" - by W3bbo

Scan have these on offer for 180 Today.

Nice write-up. Nothing to really seperate it from the others for me.

Agree with pro/con aspects in the conclusion.

Erm is it just me been blind of was overclocking skipped on this one, but I guess 210~22 is the highest the bclk will go.

Na it's in there... Just finished reading it.

Good review as per usual Rich.

Is it just or me are motherboards just dull at the minute with all results coming in the same. I used to find myself studying the results and graphs to see which boards excel where, but none excel anywhere any more!

Cheers guys.

It's frustrating as hell for me to attempt to separate the boards in terms of performance as the CPU is clearly limiting the boards on most occassions with the Baseclock running out of steam between the 200-205 mark. I have no doubts the revised D0 version would clock further in most cases. As all of the boards have the same NB and SB, and everything is run in a controlled environment performance is, and I guess should be comparable.

Hold on to your socks though because I sense P55 boards are just around the corner along with i5 CPU's which might bring some refreshement to the X58 domination.
