Cinebench, SPEC Viewperf
Cinebench would not run on the ASRock K8 Combo-Z. It would run the test very slowly and then randomly crash the benchmark. I would think this is some incompatibility with the software, as none of the other benchmarks show this kind of behaviour.
Using Socket 754 had no problems in Cinebench however. Like the other tests, the ASRock comes up a bit slower than the rest. I doubt many of you buying this board will be using the K8 Combo-Z for professional rendering and modeling anyway, so scores like this can be forgiven.

(Higher is better)
Looking at the results above, we can see that the ASRock K8 Combo-Z is the slowest of Socket 754 systems. Using the FX-53, the K8 Combo-Z does a bit better with some tests close to the nForce 4 SLI. It’s clear that modeling and rendering is better suited on other systems.
