General System Performance
Lacking a better placement for benchmark results like this, we’ll first look at how the motherboards compare in overall system performance in both PCMark05 and World Bench 5.
PCMark, from the makers of the 3DMark series, tests various aspects of the system and reports the results back in a normalized score.
World Bench 5
World Bench runs the system through a series of real world benchmarking scenarios from video editing to multitasking. We’ll be looking at the individual scores on the coming pages.
The general system performance benchmarks here show a very close competition between all the motherboards, though in the World Bench results, the 975X board is the best.
