Gigabyte EX58-UD3R X58 Motherboard

Memory Performance



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. Each of the benchmarks below were run a total of five times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average being calculated from the remaining three.

 
 
 
 


Everest is in many ways similar to Sisoft Sandra. Focusing mainly on software and hardware information reporting, Everest also comes with a benchmark utility suitable for testing the read, write and latency performance of the memory subsystem. Each of these benchmarks were performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average calculated from the remaining three.
 
 
 
 
Results Analysis

Memory performance in the Sisoft Sandra benchmarks showed some bizarre results. Despite testing, retesting and double checking the BIOS settings, the same scores were repeated time and again. Everest however showed there was little difference between all of the motherboards on test.
 
Let's see how the boards perform in our Hard Drive benchmarks...

Nice review mate.

If I were to get the inkling to go I7, this board would probably make the shortlist. Performance at a good price is always a winner.Quote

This isn't that outrageous for the "next" Intel board. We just got used to new 775 being in $100 range... New means long time til mainstream for cheapness... but very sad if you want the best. Stupid Best/New taxQuote

Agreed. It's still outrageous.

Considering the kind of systems u can still buy with 775 and get an equal terms use out of it. Performance on a par.

Nice mobo, but u can get an EP45-DS5 for around £120 (at least I did), and clock the eff out of whatever proven cpu. And that's a ddr2 option. Heck get urself 8g of nothingness whilst ur at it and u still have cash left, from what u didn't buy the I7 kit with, to buy a GTX260/275/280/285 to build a rig not to be sniffed at.Quote

Prices of motherboards have been rising for a long time now. You are always going to pay top dollar for cutting edge technology. Take SSD's for example: for a 30GB SSD you could have 2TB of standard drives in raid 0!Quote
