ECS H67H2-M Black Edition Motherboard ReviewThu, Mar 03, 2011 - 12:00 AM
wPrime is a leading multithreaded benchmark for x86 processors that tests your processor performance by calculating square roots with a recursive call of Newton’s method for estimating functions, with f(x)=x2-k, where k is the number we’re sqrting, until Sgn(f(x)/f’(x)) does not equal that of the previous iteration, starting with an estimation of k/2. It then uses an iterative calling of the estimation method a set amount of times to increase the accuracy of the results. It then confirms that n(k)2=k to ensure the calculation was correct. It repeats this for all numbers from 1 to the requested maximum.
wPrime confirms what we saw in Sandra, the ECS H67H2-M is right in line with how we expect a 2500K to perform on a P67 motherboard!
