ASUS P6X58D-E  Review

Synthetics Continued

Lavalys Everest

Everest tests in a similar method to SiSoft Sandra, but with different tests and a different method of scoring. Thanks to the always speedy updates from Lavalys (a brand-new build to identify the latest hardware is back to us within the day) we can be certain that it's testing as well as possible.

As a great demonstration of the quality of the P6X58D-E we see our 25% overclock obtain about a third better score. Impressive indeed.


CineBench R11.5

CineBench from Maxon utilises their ever popular Cinema 4D rendering engine to perform both real-time and static rendering. The difference our 4.2GHz overclock makes to the OpenGL test is mind-blowing, but even at stock the P6X58D-E performs well.



POV-Ray is a freeware ray-tracing program that tests the processing capabilities in a more real-world setting than our synthetic tests.


PC Mark Vantage

Finally we have the excellent PC Mark Vantage, here in 64 bit guise. The P6X58D-E has plenty of ability to hand even the harshest applications. Despite our system running at the high edge of performance every test showed an improvement. The only test that didn't was the HDD one which, as we all know, is very variable at the best of times and so not a true reflection of the performance of the board.

If I was looking at building an i7 980x rig, would the Premium be the better board to take based purely on the processor?Quote
