Basic performanceFuturemark tests
We'll be starting with the 3DMarks series from Futureùarl. The scores you'll find below are normal, perhaps a tad on the lower side. We're missing a bit of CPU power in these synthetic benchmarks. You can compare these scores on the FuturemarkORB
(Online result Browser) or the HWbot
Gaming time! The DFI combined with the AMD 3500+ is well capable of playing games at high resolution and detail settings. I also added some low resolution benchmarks, as these are more CPU (and board) dependent to use afterwards.
Not much to say about these results. They seem on the slow side. But we're not really used to see this benchmark tool being ran at defaults settings. More results for later...
Driverheaven made this pretty nifty PhotoShop Benchmark
which is basically a collection of actions performed on an image and the time measured for each operation.
Using Adobe Photoshop CS 2 we ran trough this benchmark in 215,1 seconds.
This board surely isn’t made to be used stock speeds, so on to the overclocking ->
