MSI X58 Platinum Motherboard

3D Benchmarks

Cinebench 10 is a benchmarking tool based on the powerful 3D software Cinema 4D. The suite uses complex renders to gauge 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. Also included are the CrossfireX results to give an indication of how 8x PCIe lanes perform.

Results Analysis
In the 3D benchmarks, Asus have the advantage by a clear margin, outscoring the MSI in every Cinebench test. The results were then turned on their heads when we ran the Futuremark benchmarks with the MSI proving its worth. Only when we ran Vantage did the scores even out.

Let's take a look at our gaming benchmarks...
