For testing purposes I used the following system:
For performance comparison I used the following system:
*All testing was done on a fresh install of Windows XP Professional build 2600 with Service Pack 2 and DirectX 9.0c. All benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running. No overclocking was done on any components unless otherwise noted.
Everest 1.51 :
Everest 1.51 is a professional system information, diagnostics and benchmarking program for Win32 platforms. It extracts details of all components of the PC. It also tests the actual read and write speeds of your memory to give a fairly accurate look of true memory performance.
ScienceMark 2.0 Beta:
ScienceMark 2.0 is different from other benchmarks, in a sense the benchmark tests a series of different memory bandwidth algorithms. To top it all off the assembly source for these copy routines is available online to help assure the benchmark is not biased towards any one platform in particular.
The POVRay benchmark is great for showing the performance levels of various processors and compilers by timing how long it takes for POV-Ray to render a standard image with standard parameters.
Massive Development AquaMark3:
The AquaMark3 executes a complete state-of-the-art game engine and generates 3D scenes designed to make the same demands on hardware as a modern game. The utilized game engine, the krass Engine, has been used in Aquanox and AquaNox 2: Revelation as well as in the upcoming RTS Spellforce by Phenomic Game Development. AquaMark3 utilizes recent hardware features of the new DirectX 9 API, such as PixelShader 2.0, while staying fully backward compatible to DirectX 8 and 7 graphics hardware.
SuperPi 1.1e :
SuperPi calculates the number Pi in this raw number crunching benchmark. The benchmark is fairly diverse and allows the user to change the number of digits of Pi that can be calculated. In this benchmark we ran SuperPi to 4 million places.
Far Cry Benchmark Utility ver. 1.4:
Doom 3 TimeDemo 1:
I ran the full range of benchmarks but didn’t feel the need to post every result because, as you can see from the results above, there was little difference between the 875P-T and the P4C800-E Deluxe .
Is that a bad thing? I don’t believe so, as in my opinion the P4C800-E Deluxe is one of the best Socket 478 boards made. This simply shows DFI’s 875P-T for what it is, a very solid board that allows users to upgrade their system incrementally while maintaining a high performance system.
While these results may not make everyone giddy, let’s see how she overclocks…..
