Foxconn DigitaLife ELA P45 Motherboard

Synthetic 3D Benchmarks

Cinebench 10 logo
 
Cinebench 10 is a benchmarking tool based on the powerful 3D software Cinema 4D. The suite uses complex renders to guage the performance of the entire PC system in both single-core and multi-core modes. Testing was performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average created from the remaining 3 results.

3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.
 
 
 
Results Observations
 
The Cinebench 10 Rendering and OpenGL benchmarks illustrated the difference between the motherboards and how much CPU clock speed makes a difference. The Foxconn ELA fell quite badly behind the pack here with a 400-odd point deficit between the leading Foxconn BlackOps during the 1x CPU test, and around 1700 points for all four cores. OpenGL performance also took a hit here with the Foxconn ELA coming in last by quite a margin against the three reference motherboards.

This trend continued further with the 3DMark05 and 3DMark06 synthetic tests. However, the deficit between all the motherboards is now significantly reduced. I can't help but feel that if the Foxconn ELA had been able to be overclocked to 3.6GHz like the reference motherboards, then the results would have been significantly more interesting.

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
