All test are the best out of three runs. Before each test the system was rebooted, this to achieve max performance. So let's see what the Gene II is capable off :SuperPI 1Mb and Wprime 32
Really neck-to-neck here. Spot on results, no deviations at all...(taking into consideration the margin of error) This test is a tieSuperPI 32Mb and WPrime 1024
The Gene II won each 32Mb Pi run, being just a tad faster than the Rampage Extreme II. Maybe the latest bios for the REX II was a bit more tweaked for compatibility and less focused on performance. But I was really pleasantly surprised that its tiny brother pulled this off. 1-0 for the Gene II in the ram department. Wprime 1024 was again very very close and a foto-finish was required to conclude that the REX got that tiny bit more raw CPU power...Lavalys Everest Benchmark :
Following the pi 32mb run, the Gene II was also faster in the Everest benchmark. Crosschecking the ram timings via MemSet didn't show any discrepancies, values were all equal. For your info the Back to back Cas delay was also set manually to 8 for both boards. (More on this matter later on on)
Take note that each Everest version seems to give different results. If your system gives far better/worse results, at the same clocks, it could be due to you owning another version of this software. Baby Rampage owns this test : score 2-0Futuremark 3DMARK06 and PCMARK05
Gene II was always a bit faster in PCmark05, yet lost time after time in the Synthetic 3D test 3DMARK06. For PCMARK05 comparing the different tests, the Gene II is faster in the HD favourable tests, Vidcard and CPU tests are in favor of the REX II. Rests of the tests are pretty close. 3dmark wise the cards turn in favor for the REX II. With a bit more CPU power it achieves to surpass its little brother. If this reflects in real games we will see on the next page.
