Testing – Artificial Benchmarks
I ran a series of popular benchmarks to check out the performance and stability of the X58 SuperComputer, both at stock clock and at my overclock. I also ran the same benchmarks on a Core 2 Duo rig, just to show how much of a performance boost the i7 has over the C2D.
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 45nm
Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR3-1600 4GB kit
Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 Toxic VaporX
Silverstone Decathlon DA-800 PSU
Thermaltake Xaser VI Full Tower
CoolIT Domino A.L.C. Liquid CPU Cooler
Windows Vista Home 64-bit
I have run these same benchmarks on the other i7 motherboards I’ve reviewed. Some scores were significantly lower, some significantly higher, but overall, the results were about the same.
