Intel P35 Bearlake Motherboard And DDR3 Memory – Asus and Corsair
Windows Media Encoder Multitask And 3D StudioMax
Below we have the results from WB 5.0's Windows Media Encoder/Mozilla multitask and 3D Studio Max performance modules, recorded in seconds. Lower times indicate better performance here, so the shorter the bar the better.
Our multitasking test showed the obvious advantage of both bus speed and memory bandwidth at 3GHz settings. However, settling down to a 1066MHz bus, the field closes in tightly with no significant advantage to any one system configuration. 3D Studio Max showed a consistent, small edge to the Intel P35-based test machines, as well as higher speed DDR3-1333 memory.
