Media and Rendering Tests
This rendering benchmark based off of the Cinema 4D engine is a terrific indicator for multi-threaded processing.
Known mainly for its DVD re-encoding prowess, our test uses the Handbrake command line interface.
Again we noticed performance drops in Cinebench and Handbrake with the P55 FTW. This board could be optimized for gaming and other multi-threaded programs, but here it clearly shows that they might have some minor performance issues with this board that need to be ironed out before they can compete against the likes of Intel, ASUS, and Gigabyte.
