The Test System

Before we look at the numbers, here is a brief glance at the test system that was used. All testing was done on a fresh install of Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit. All benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running. The Intel Core i7 test system was run in triple-channel memory mode at 1866MHz with 8-8-8-24 memory timings. The ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard uses the Intel ICH10R south bridge chipset, which is what was used for testing.
