PCMark 05 Professional

PCMark 05 gives us a chance to look at individual aspects of performance at a glance, and see how motherboards compare in each.

The System Test includes a little bit of everything - Windows startup, physics calculations, 2D windows, 3D graphics, web page rendering, memory test, HDD usage, etc. And many of these tests are repeated at the same time, to test multitasking.

This time the memory scores are even, and we also see the 6150-based NF-M2 nView pull ahead of the 570 Ultra, along with the 590 SLI. Nice showing so far!

These tests simply show that nothing is going wrong with any of the boards we tested with.\

CineBench 9.5

Cinebench is a software-based multi-threaded rendering benchmark. It is based on a real world platform; Maxon's CINEMA 4D software, so while it is a synthetic benchmark, it should give an idea of how a system would perform in Maxon's rendering software.

Scores are even, as expected on this CPU-based benchmark.
