Testing – System
Our first full system test is the newly released PCMark 7. It is basically an entire system benchmark.
Up next is PCMark Vantage.
Moving back to Sandra 2011b, we are going to run the memory-specific tests. These tests include the Memory Bandwidth benchmark, Memory latency benchmark, and the Cache & Memory benchmark. You will notice not a big difference in the stock and overclocked results, that is because the CPU is overclocked independently of the memory.
This board also offers USB 3.0 connectivity. We will be using the Patriot Supersonic 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive connected via USB 3.0 then again via USB 2.0 to show you the difference in speeds.
