CineBench

CineBench is a benchmarking tool based on the powerful 3D software Cinema 4D. Consequently, the results of tests conducted using CineBench carry significant weight when analysing a computer’s performance in everyday use. Remember in the GPU-based benchmarks that the abit F-I90HD is using the onboard X1250 and so is at a disadvantage.

The abit Fatal1ty F-I90HD keeps pace with the other motherboards in the CPU testing, dropping only a few CB-CPU's.

Lagging behind due to it's GPU, the abit board still gives a half decent account of itself and shows that you can also have a very budget rendering motherboard here.

HD Tach

HDTach is a free hard disk benchmarking program from SimpliSoftware. This benchmark is not only capable of producing results on hard disk access times but also CPU usage required during disk access. It simply tests the hard drives in a nice quick and easy test. Let's see how the abit F-I90HD fares here.

Keeping up with the other boards with a respectable 207Mbps the F-I90HD shows it doesn't lose out on disc access speed. With only 1% more CPU utilisation you shouldn't have too much bother with all your CPU power being taken up when accessing the hard discs either.

I think the most impressive part is the letter from Wendell!

Tbh I've quite liked the look of this one since I first saw it, imo it'd be fantastic for a HTPC.Quote

One thing I just thought of actually, why did they decide to brand it as a fatality product? Surely they should be for 'hardcore' gamers?Quote

Well ye I thought that a bit strange, but I suppose they are trying to market it as a gaming productQuote

I'm sure they'd probably make more money marketing it as a HTPC product. Without the fatality branding it'd probably be cheaper and the 690G with HDMI just seems like the perfect HTPC board. Ah well, I'm sure there are some very well paid people in the workd making these kind of desisions.Quote
