YoYoTech Intel Spartan 300 Gaming System

CineBench, Peazip & POV-Ray

Cinebench 10
 
Cinebench 10 is a benchmarking tool based on the powerful 3D software Cinema 4D. The suite uses complex renders to guage the performance of the entire PC system in both single-core and multi-core modes. Testing was performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average created from the remaining 3 results.

PeaZip
 
Peazip is an open-source file compression front-end application that makes use of 7-Zip's command line utility for performing the actual compression and de-compression of files. However, Peazip is different from most other archiving utilities in that it is able to accurately record the time taken to perform these tasks, which gives us a reliable method of recording overall system performance. During this test we placed a folder containing a collection of 200 text documents (sizes varying from 1KB to 100MB) on the Spartan's hard disk and performed both compression and decompression.

POV-Ray
 
POV-Ray is short for the Persistence of Vision Raytracer, a tool for producing high-quality computer graphics. The freely available software suite is bundled with a benchmarking scene that uses many of POV-Ray's internal features to heavily test the abilities of the CPU.

Result Observations
 
Both the Cinebench and Peazip results were pretty much as expected from a dual-core system with an average performance hard disk. However, the results obtained from POV-Ray took us by surprise, with the Spartan actually managing to beat out a Quad-Core system overclocked to 3.6GHz in a previous review.

I`ll open by being brutally honest in that I`ve never forgiven YoYoTech for advertizing the IX38-MAX, and it of course not making the shops

However, great review Jim, and I have equally be honest that if some1 came to me with the story we all get "can u build me a pc" - for £500, I`d point them at this. Jim had to technicalities.. but here`s the beauty about it - the person who bought it wouldn`t be on my phone all the time with an issue That my friends is priceless.

Once going and benching is pretty darn decent, and there`s a fair bit of expansion u can add to it in the future - which is the downfall of most pre-made systems.

Good stuff.

Cracking VFM, shame about the slight issues. Still, they've stretched £500 a long wayQuote

Several times you mention the mobo as a P45 chipset but it's not, it's a P43.

Rumour has it that P43 has been constrained to ~400fsb (way down on P45) for overclocking which I would love you to test if you still have the system.Quote

From what I've been told the board that was used in that system is actually a P45 board and MSI have just changed the sticker on it to read P43 so that they can sell it at a lower price.

If you check the pics in the review, have a look at the model number printed on the PCB and punch it into Google.

Maybe MSI have done something to it...but to me it looked like a P45 with a sticker on it.Quote
