Foxconn DigitaLife ELA P45 Motherboard

CPU and Memory Benchmarks

SiSoft Sandra logo
 
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.
 
 




 
Everest logo
 
Everest is in many ways similar to Sisoft Sandra. Focusing mainly on software and hardware information reporting, Everest also comes with a benchmark utility suitable for testing the read, write and latency performance of the memory subsystem. Each of these benchmarks were performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average calculated from the remaining 3.
 
 


 
 
Results Observations
 
It's interesting to note that the Sisoft Sandra CPU Arithmatic benchmark doesn't appear to be dependant upon processor clock speed. With the Intel Q6600 running at 3.2GHZ on the Foxconn ELA, there is marginal difference between the results of the other three reference motherboards. However, the CPU Mulimedia (Integer and Floating Point) benchmark illustrates a different story, by showing the Foxconn ELA lagging considerably behind the two X48 and P35 motherboards.

DDR2 memory performance (Read, Write and Latency) was substantially better on the Foxconn ELA than the P35-based ASUS Blitz Formula SE. Unfortunately though, better performance was provided by the X48 motherboards with an increased CPU clock speed and DDR3 RAM.

Foxconn ELA P45 Motherboard review

Ouch. That looks like a mobo desperately seeking a bios upd8 of sorts. The only thing I would throw out is the possibility that this mobo would perform better with the 45nm cpus - it's a longshot, but with the likes of Q6600 going eol, perhaps they've initially overlooked their specific tuning in favor of more current cpus.

That being said, if it is the case, I`m sure they`ll still look into doing a bios for them out of demand.

Even with it's shortfallings in the oc department, I'm surprized it did as well as it did.

Big sticking point is 200. Foxconn really do charge over the odds for their mobos. In some cases, with the BlackOps packaging, u can sanction an excuse. But here I definately can't, by a good 50.

Nice review, even tho disappointing.

Thanks for the feedback Rast and definitely agreed - Foxconn have shot themselves in the foot here unfortunately
