Benchmarks: SiSoft Sandra 2004, Super Pi

SiSoft Sandra 2004 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.

Performance at stock speeds is very good, when overclocked things are just excellent. Please remember that the memory is running slower than the motherboard clock speed, that's why bandwidth is lower when overclocked.

Super Pi Source: SuperPI

SuperPI calculates the number PI to 1 Million digits in this raw number crunching benchmark. The benchmark is fairly diverse and allows the user to change the number of digits of PI that can be calculated from 16 Thousand to 32 Million. The benchmark, which uses 19 iterations in the test, is set 1 Million digits.

Lower numbers denote faster calculation times (seconds), and hence, better performance.

Here the Epox 8KDA3+ starts to flex its muscles... Overclocking allows the board to shave off a whole five seconds from SuperPI!
