Gigabyte G1.Assassin X58 Motherboard Review
SiSoft SANDRA and Cinebench R11.5
We started off our testing with SiSoftware's SANDRA 2011, the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. We ran three of the built-in subsystem tests that partially comprise the SANDRA 2010 suite on the test motherboards (CPU Arithmetic, CPU Multi-Media, and Memory).
Three of four SANDRA tests went to the Rampage III Extreme, but the G1 Assassin was able to capture first place in the multi-media benchmark.
Cinebench R11.5 is real world cross platform test suite that evaluates PC performance capabilities. It is based on Maxon's animation software, Cinema 4D. The CPU test scenario uses all of the system's processing power to render a photorealistic 3D scene, and makes use of various algorithms to stress available processor cores. Results are given in points.
Again, the Rampage III Extreme doesn't give up the top spot very easy. The good news is that the G1 Assassin is never far behind the Rampage's performance.
