Motherboard Performance Comparisons

SiSoft Sandra Pro Business


Lost Planet Colonies

Lost Planet was tested at 1920×1200 with 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering. All in-game settings were at their maximum level.


The above results show that regardless of the motherboard chosen each of the products being tested today offer very good performance in CPU intensive tasks such as the Sisoft Sandra Multimedia test. When we move to gaming on a single card the same can be said with only minor variations in frames per second between each board. This means that the features/support of each board should be the main reason for choosing between them. A good example of this are boards which have varied CrossFire PCIe speeds. For those boards which work in 2×16 mode such as the Asus Crosshair the results are significantly better than boards which use 2×8 mode.
