Synthetic Benchmarks

Synthetic Benchmarks
 
SiSoft Sandra
 
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 Multimedia
 
 
Memory Test
 
The Core i7 LGA1366 platform's Triple Channel Memory controller's capabilities become quite evident in this test, offering a considerably higher bandwith compared to equivlent Dual Channel kits. Note that due to the CPU overclock, the RAM operates at DDR3-1360, 240MHz down from it's rated frequency.
 
 
 
CinebenchR10
 
CinebenchR10 analyses the speed at which a processor renders a high resolution image and outputs a score accordingly. The test was carried out in singlethreaded and multithreaded mode.
 
 
 
Passmark
 
Passmark is an "all round" system benchmark, which puts all core components through it's paces. While synthetic, it offers some insight into the capabilities of a particular system. A near perfect score is a testiment of the Titan Goliath's performance.
 
 
HDTune 
 
 
HDTune shows that Gigabyte EX58 UD3R's Southbridge does not struggle to handle today's Hard Disk Drives. One would be surprised if it did but hey ho...Let's proceed to gaming performance.

Nice review Mul,

Good to see that off the shelf pc's can be good. But near enough a £300 premium on having it built Quote

Blimey. Are OCUK in danger of improving their quality? It's tough to fault the cable management and even their old "ramp the vcore to obtain the OC" problem seems to be missing.

Definitely though that's a serious wedge of cash for a mid-tower air-cooled machine. I'd definitely love to see a 750 or 850 Corsair in there (30 extra), a Blu-Ray reader instead of the DVD (another 30) and a 1TB minimum (another 20). I could always live without the Antec cases. They don't make one I find even remotely attractive. Ok they offer a HAF, but that's the only case if you don't want an Antec one.

And using the el-cheapo Gigabyte worries me a little. Especially for that kinda wedge. Self building I could easily slot a Asus P6TD in there, at retail pricing.

So basically it's fine as an off-the-peg product, but to this particular audience it doesn't contain many elements we'd actually choose to put in a system. Apart from the 5870 obviously. No actually only the 5870.Quote
