3DMark Vantage

3DMark Vantage is Futuremarks flagship gaming oriented benchmark at present and is considered to be a demanding one at that. Our tests were carried out under the "Performance" prefix.

Both the Zotac and Gigabyte systems perform very similarly though naturally, the Core i3 @ 3.60GHz takes a considerable performance lead over the 3.30GHz overclock on the Zotac.

Left 4 Dead

Left 4 Dead is a very popular hit and should be an interesting choice to take our testbed for a spin. Let's see how well it performs.

We were most interested to see that the L4D chart was quite level regardless of clockspeed.

Microsoft Flight Simulator X

Flight Simulator X remains to be a terribly demanding game for it's age. Known for being very demanding on the CPU but also requiring a level of GPU power in the process, we thought it'd be interesting to see how it faired.

For those who are interested in this particular benchmark, it comes to no surprise that the Gigabyte @ 3.60GHz offers a noticeable lead in this CPU limited game.

Crysis Warhead

Crysis Warhead is without a doubt one hard nut to crack, especially at higher resolutions and a dash of Anti Aliasing and Anisotropic Filtering.

Given Warhead's heavy GPU dependency, both boards perform almost identically and regardless of CPU Frequency.

DiRT 2

DiRT2 is a very recent race driving game, known for it's Direct X 11 support.

Once again, the Radeon HD 5670 doesn't quite cut it at this resolution and so the test equipment remains very similar in performance. In general it is fair to say that both the Zotac and Gigabyte perform very similarly and I suppose one shouldn't be surprised by this. Let's wrap this up...

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.
