ASUS P5N32-SLI Premium/WiFi-AP Edition nForce 590 Review - Page 5 of 6

BENCHMARKS

I used FutureMark's PCMark05 and a few tests from SiSoft Sandra 2007 to see how the motherboard performed in synthetic tests. All of these benchmarks were harvested with the computer running every component at their stock speeds.

In Sandra, the Memory Bandwidth test was used as well as the CPU Multimedia and CPU Arithmetic tests. I tried to keep the same computers in all three of the benchmarks, but in some cases, various setups weren't available. I tried to always run this computer against the top two from Intel and top two from AMD in the provided options.

The nForce 590-driven P5N32-SLI Premium/WiFi-Ap has got a healthy lead over Intel's 955x and 945p chipsets as well as the ATI Xpress 1600 chipset. Of course, differences in memory types/speeds have a play in that, but still: it's a very solid and speedy board.

Not surprisingly, the X6800 was quite a bit faster and the E6700 was only slightly faster than this CPU.

Again, it comes as no shock that the E6600 trails behind both the X6800 and E6700; however, the lead all of them have over the Athlon FX-62 is pretty enormous. This is a blazing fast CPU and chipset combination, no doubt about it!

Sadly, due to the thermal situation when overclocking, no benchmarks are available.
