DFI X58 T3H6 JR mATX Motherboard

PCMark Vantage



PCMark Vantage is the latest benchmarking suite from Futuremark. Differing significantly from their 3DMark suites, PCMark performs a series of benchmarks designed to recreate and benchmark scenarios of a PC being used for everyday tasks. Vantage has a Vista only requirement as it actually relies on several different components from the OS in order to run correctly.
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
Results Analysis
The DFI started out well, topping the pile in both Hard drive scores and memories. However, it soon settled back into the middle of the pack for the remaining tests. This is perhaps the story of the DFI throughout todays testing with it scoring well in some tests but average in others. Overall, I would say the board falls in the 'above average' sector with regards to performance and while it is falls short of bettering the Asus Gene it is by no means a slouch.
 
Let's head over to the conclusion where I attempt to put today's testing into perspective...

Nice job webbo.

I'm happy to see more performance mATX boards springing out and actually making it into production. Now we just need one that's 50 less but still as good .

DFI's X58 Jr. is certainly a quality base to build one mean, micro sized machine. Nice to see that unlike the other Jr. boards, both PCI-E slots are electrically 16x.

Owned a DFI LP Jr. P45 T2RS for a couple of months and was very impressed with it. DFI's mATX range is looking very good indeed

Id question wether or not you need a dfi matx, as most people clock the whohas out of them and the insane bios options are half the reason why they buy them.

Not something you need in a HTPC, but chioce is never a bad thing.

Great review matey

Yeah, those that'll make good use of the rediculously high voltage options and tweaking benefits are likely to be using high end or extreme cooling solutions and that usually means either a very large or no case at all.

However, there are those that still want a top end gaming setup but for whatever reason cannot do with a large chassis sitting around. These motherboards allow users to pack high end components into small but capable cases such as the Sugo SG03 and Lian Li V350 series. A somewhat "niche" market but still a market that's worth targeting

Fantastic board really. mATX is a great form factor, especially for those who only have a small corner to tuck a PC away in but still want the best.

Looks like DFI hit the nail on the head

Great review matey!
