The Tests: Overall System Performance – World Bench 5
PC World; WorldBench 5.0
WorldBench 5 runs on PCs using the Home, Professional, Media Center, and Tablet PC versions of Windows XP. Fifteen applications (counting the components of Office XP), make up the WorldBench 5 suite.
Scores are very close here, with the Asrock board just trailing by one to the MSI. As we look at these tests, we need to remember two things: 1. Default settings on the boards should give us very similiar scores. 2. The Asrock is a budget board compared to the MSI being a more enthusiast geared board.
Pretty much a dead heat here. The boards trade off the lead as they battle in the worldbench suite. Let’s look at the rest of the results for this bechmark suite.
