MSI E7205 Master-L Workstation Motherboard Review

MSI E7205 Master-L Workstation Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The GNB Max is a good board by its own right, but if your computing situation demands more of a heavy-hitter then todays review of the MSI E7205 Master-L could be just what the doctor ordered.

Benchmarks: SiSoft Sandra 2003, HD Tach 2.61

Sisoft Sandra 2003 Source: Sandra

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system and individual components. The numbers taken though are again, purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance.

SiSoft Sandra 2003 Benchmark Results

Multimedia Benchmark (FSB)

1. Integer SSE - 133/266 11208 it/s
2. Floating-Point SSE - 133/266 14278 it/s

CPU Benchmark (FSB)

3. Dhrystone ALU - 133/266 7478 MIPS
4. Whetstone FPU - 133/266

1618 FPU/3708 SSE2 MFLOPS

Memory Benchmark (FSB)

5. Integer ALU - 133/266 3354 MB/s
6. Float FPU - 133/266 3354 MB/s

When viewing the Sandra 2003 benchmarks please keep in mind that they're not comparable to results from Sandra 2002. For some reason in 2003 the same system will score a bit higher.

HD Tach 2.61 Source: TestaCD Labs

HD Tach is a physical performance hard drive test for Windows 95/98/ME and Windows NT/2000. In Windows 9X/ME it uses a special kernel mode VXD to get maximum accuracy by bypassing the file system. A similar mechanism is used in Windows NT/2000. The HD Tach sequential read test is a little bit different from other benchmarks. Most benchmarks create a file on the hard drive and test within that file. The problem is that modern hard drives use a zone bit recording technique that allows different read speeds depending on where the data is located. Data on the outside of the drive is much faster than data recorded on the inside.

HDTach 2.61
Access time (ms) 8.8 ms

Read burst speed (mbps)

Over 80MB/s
Read speed max (kps) 35416 kps
Read speed min (kps) 23120 kps
Read speed avg (kps) 31702.7 kps
CPU utilization 1.7%

Using a 10k RPM SCSI drive we see that the access time is quite a bit faster then IDE drives. CPU Utilization is at an amazing 1.7% while most a Maxtor D740X is running 7.8%!
