Motherboard Benchmarks: SiSoft Sandra, Super Pi, PCMark05

SiSoft Sandra 2005 Source: Sandra

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.

Processor numbers from the MSI P35 Platinum are in line with what we expect from an Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 processor. Memory bandwidth is nice and high, an easy 300MB/s more than was available from the Intel P965 Express chipset!

Super Pi Mod 1.5 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.

The extra memory bandwidth provided by the MSI P35 Platinum is not enough to lower the 1 million digit calculation time. Still 20 seconds is pretty darn quick!

PCMark05 results are nice and high, the MSI P35 Platinum puts on another strong showing. The two Intel P35 Express motherboards exchange roles here, in any case the boards seem to have a lot of memory bandwidth available. Let's see what the other benchmarks have to say....
