Synthetic CPU and Memory Benchmarks
SiSoft Sandra XII and Cinebench R10

At stock speeds, the X58 Classified will perform virtually identically to other X58 platform boards on the market. Interestingly, EVGA is somewhat conservative with their clock timings, as our board had the tendency to run about 10 MHz slower in overall clock speed compared to our other X58 boards, which affects its benchmarks slightly.
