Cinebench is a real world benchmarking tool that’s based on the Cinema4d engine that’s utilised for 3D content generation. It can be used to compare CPU and GPU performance by rendering a scene of shiny balls and similar objects utilising many modern computing standards.
Complete mirror image of the results here. Cinebench, not affected by motherboard it seems.
CustomPC Test Suite
While it’s a few years old at this point, the CustomPC benchmark suite is nice and easy to use and it offers some good insight into CPU and system performance across several different tests. These include a Handbrake video encoding, GIMP photo manipulation and multitasking.
Interestingly here, Asus beats out Sapphire in the Image Editing test, whereas the latter wins in the Video encoding. Unfortunately for the GPU maker, Asus however wins in multitasking and overall results.
AIDA64 is the successor to Everest memory benchmarking system. They were kind enough to provide us with an Extreme Engineer Edition, so big thanks to them.
Asus wins out here again, by quite a large margin for the write test.
Asus P8P67 LE
Random Access Time: 13.43 ms
Sapphire Pure Black P67 Hydra
Random Access Time: 14ms
Here the Asus just pips the Sapphire by a few MBps and just over half a millisecond.
STALKER Clear Sky
This is another benchmark from our GPU test suite. Again it’s a nice benchmark to run that’s still reasonably taxing at the higher settings.The ones used were:
Low: Default settings, , no AA, 1280×1024
Medium: Extreme settings, DX10, 1280×1024
High: Extreme settings, Enhanced lighting DX10, 4x AA, 1280×1024
Ultra: Extreme settings, Enhanced lighting DX10, 4x AA, 1920×1080
All results are average frames per second.
There’s going to be some slight differences with this benchmark, as this is technically real world. However, it seems quite clear that the Sapphire has lost. Asus has some clear margins of 10 FPS in a few places, but there’s a trend across the whole range of the Asus being slightly stronger.
