P45 Showdown - Asus P5Q Deluxe vs MSI P45 Diamond

3D/Rendering Results

 
 
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. Also included are the CrossfireX results to give an indication of how 8x PCIe lanes perform.

Results Observations
 
As expected, the CPU is bottlenecking the GPUs in 3DMark05, with hardly any difference between single and dual card setups. 3DMark06 shows a bigger gap due to the higher resolution, a gap that would no doubt widen if the resolution was increased further. It's clear to see that those with a bigger screen will benefit more from a dual card setup than those on a smaller resolution. One point of interest was that the P5Q Deluxe seems to take the advantage in 3D applications. This could be down to the tighter memory timings.

"With Intels latest chipset about to be officially launched we have managed to grab two P45 samples and pitch them against one another to see who is top dog."

Stellar review as always Jim. The ASUS P5Q appears to have the goods where it counts although the MSI P45 Diamond is well laid out - bar the colour scheme.

Well done Quote
