Benchmarks: Office Productivity, SiSoft Sandra, Super Pi

Office Productivity Winstone 2004 Source: Zdnet

Business Winstone 2004 runs real applications through a series of scripted activities and uses the time a PC takes to complete these activities to produce its performance scores.

Content Creation Winstone 2004 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running top, Windows-based, 32-bit, content creation applications in Windows XP.

Office Productivity
Business Winstone 2004: Points Ranking
Foxconn 975X7AA-8EKRS2H (975X 200/667) 27.4
Foxconn C51XEM2AA (NF 590 SLI 200/800) 36.3
Asus M2N32SLI-DLX (NF 590 SLI 200/800) 36.4
Biostar Tforce 6100 AM2 (GF 6100 200/800) 34
ASRock AM2V890-VSTA (K8T890 200/800) 34.3
Content Creation 2004: Points Ranking
Foxconn 975X7AA-8EKRS2H (975X 200/667) 33.8
Foxconn C51XEM2AA (NF 590 SLI 200/800) 46.2
Asus M2N32SLI-DLX (NF 590 SLI 200/800) 46.2
Biostar Tforce 6100 AM2 (GF 6100 200/800) 46.1
ASRock AM2V890-VSTA (K8T890 200/800) 46.2

The ASRock AM2V890-VSTA motherboard excels in the Office Productivity benchmarks, both in Business Winstone and content creation. This underscores the point that you do not need a high-end motherboard to run office applications, do word processing, surf the Internet, or shoot out an e-mail. Motherboards such as the ASRock AM2V890-VSTA are the reason why mainstream systems are so popular with students and businesses alike.

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system as well as the individual components. The results are also purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance.

If you had any doubts about how an older chipset would perform under load, these Sandra scores should put your mind to rest. The ASRock AM2V890-VSTA has a ton of bandwidth available, and as expected the Athlon64 FX-62 processor numbers are nice and high. To be realistic, it is very unlikely that this board would ever be used with a FX-62 processor, but we have used it for the purposes of these tests so the results are comparable to other systems which have passed through the PCSTATS labs.

Super Pi Source: SuperPI

SuperPI calculates the number PI to 1 Million digits in this raw number crunching benchmark. The program allows the user to change the number of digits of PI that can be calculated from 16 thousand to 32 million. Our benchmark is set to 1 Million digits and 19 iterations.

SuperPi
1 Million Digits: Seconds Ranking
Foxconn 975X7AA-8EKRS2H (975X 200/667) 40
Foxconn C51XEM2AA (NF 590 SLI 200/800) 30
Asus M2N32SLI-DLX (NF 590 SLI 200/800) 31
Biostar Tforce 6100 AM2 (GF 6100 200/800) 30
ASRock AM2V890-VSTA (K8T890 200/800) 31

Super Pi times are nice and low. The mainstream oriented ASRock AM2V890-VSTA motherboard is certainly not hindering these mathematical calculations. Next up, PCMark05 and 3DMark05 gaming benchmarks with the VIA K8T890 chipset!
