Asus X58 Sabertooth Review
3D Mark Vantage
In both our Performance and High tests the Sabertooth just drops behind the P6X58D-E. Considering how well it performed on the previous page we were surprised, but then when you see how much higher the GPU is scoring it's possible that the new drivers have just taken the edge off the HD5870 compared to when we tested the P6X and that has led to the difference in the final score.
Once again it's a close run thing between the two boards. The Sabertooth again seems to perform magnificently at stock. Indeed it's so much better than the P6X58D-E at stock that it's pushing close to the overclocked result.
We finish up with Unigine Heaven, which is one of the harshest benchmarks we run. Similarly to 3D Mark Vantage it is very GPU dependant and therefore it's not surprising to see the P6X58D-E take a lead as the 3D Mark GPU score showed the Sabertooth not quite having the same performance in that department.
