Gigabyte H55N USB3

CPU Performance

CPU Performance

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.

CPU Arithmetic

The CPU arithmetic test ascertains the processor's capabilities in terms of numerical operations. Two subtests named Dhrystone and Whetstone are carried out respectively. This is not a measure of latency and thus higher is better



The Gigabyte board sets itself up for an excellent start, performing competitively against the Zotac and pulling well ahead with the 3.60GHz overclocked Core i3.

CPU Multimedia

The CPU Multimedia Test focuses on CPU based operations that may occur during multimedia based tasks. The magnitude of the score depends on the processor's ability to handle Integer, Float and Double data types. 

The Core i3 performs very well despite being a dual core. Regardless both boards perform very closely against each other.


CPU Queen

CPU Queen is based on branch prediction and the misprediction penalties that are involved.

CPU Photoworxx

PhotoWorxx as the name may suggest tests processors by means of invoking functions that are common to Photo Manipulation including Fill, Flip, Crop, Rotate, Difference and Colour to B&W conversion.

CPU ZLib

This is an integer based benchmark that will test the CPU and Memory by means of the CPU ZLib compression library.

Across the entire Everest suite, the trend of results remain very much the same between the two boards on test. That said, the Photoworxx test identifies an oddball result for the Core i3 @ 3.60GHz. Multiple repetitions of the test yielded results within the same range.

 WinRAR

 WinRAR's embedded Benchmark focuses on the processor's File Compression capability.

This test has successfully captured Hyperthreading technology in action with a performance speed up in excess of 2.0x from single thread to multi thread operation. The greater overclocking headroom of the Gigabyte H55N USB3.0 has shown a rather disproportionate performance increase here.

Finally, Gigabyte have unleashed a rival to the critically acclaimed Zotac H55 ITX.

great review, but the maximum futuremark vantage scores are all identical and lower than the averages. Otherwise excellent work, and looks like a new ITX champ

One of the futuremark graphs looks weird, with the average being bigger than the max. (or it could be my coffee's gone cold)

What's the ALC892R like ? Very important to me that.

Other than that, 90 (mrrp?), upto 10 off for online stores, I would definitely look for this one in something like a Scan Today special. If it went for 75-80 it sounds a bargain.

Great stuff.

Hi guys

It would seem that I forgot to apply the correct labels on the Vantage graph. Minimum Maximum and Average actually refererred to Overall Score, GPU Score and CPU Score respectively.

As for the ALC892R, honestly I could not fault it. The sound quality was crisp enough and appeared to be at least as good as the previous 889 series.

Atlast Gigabyte have a better motherboard device.having a maximum storage capacity with good intel processor.For Clarkdale processors, overclocking and underclocking is made easy thanks to a fully working multiplier control, and the ability to under-volt or over-volt CPUs in the H55N-USB3 BIOS. Memory overclocking is also rather good, all memory sub-timings are available, and each timing has an AUTO parameter which will scale with frequency, requiring no user-intervention to reach high operating speeds.
