ASRock P55 Deluxe Intel P55 Motherboard Review

Testing – Benchmarks
I ran the ASRock P55 Deluxe through a series of benchmarks that test all performance aspects of the processor itself and the entire system. I ran all tests at stock clock and at my overclock. I decided to also show results I received from an i7 920 LGA 1366 processor run on an ASRock X58 Supercomputer motherboard to see how much difference there would be between the two systems. These systems are not otherwise equal, as the X58 Supercomputer system was not currently available for new testing, and it was originally tested with a Radeon HD 4870, which is a much less powerful video card compared to the Radeon HD 5850. So keep in mind that the VGA intensive tests won’t be very scientific.

Keep in mind that the i7 920/X58, with its triple channel memory, should outperform the i7 860/P55 in most tests. I’m looking for how close the i7 860/P55 Deluxe system gets.

*There was a problem running SuperPi Mod on the P55 Deluxe rig. I don’t know what the issue was, it was like something was holding the program back. I ran it a dozen times and got scores ranging from 18 seconds to 42 seconds. Usually when running SuperPi the segments run smoothly, but here it would speed up and slow down. I did a complete clean install and ran SuperPi before installing everything, it still did the same thing. But I ran it on Safe Mode and it worked correctly. The scores on the i7 860 were run in Safe Mode.

**The 1x (single core) test on Cinebench10 seemed to have the same problems that SuperPi did. The Multi (all cores) ran superbly, with all eight threads running. Cinebench won’t run in Safe Mode. I was never able to figure out what was wrong.
