Asus Striker II NSE Review (Page 6 of 12)

Page 6 - Benchmark: Cinebench R10, SuperPI 1M

About Cinebench R10

CINEBENCH is a real-world test suite that assesses your computer's performance capabilities. MAXON CINEBENCH is based on MAXON's award-winning animation software, CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. MAXON software has been used in blockbuster movies such as Spider-Man, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia and many more.

MAXON CINEBENCH runs several tests on your computer to measure the performance of the main processor and the graphics card under real world circumstances. The benchmark application makes use of up to 16 CPUs or CPU cores and is available for Windows (32-bit and 64-Bit) and Macintosh (PPC and Intel-based).

The resulting values among different operating systems are 100% comparable and therefore very useful with regard to purchasing decision-making. It can also be used as a marketing tool for hardware vendors or simply to compare hardware among colleagues or friends.

From: Developer's Page

In Cinebench R10, the Asus Striker II NSE performed roughly in the same category as the P35 boards -- which is, really, not strong in the CPU rendering area as compared to native Intel performance chipsets such as the X38 and X48 based boards. The difference is really negligible to the end user though, and in reality the Asus Striker II NSE is consistent in performance with the rest.

About SuperPI

Super PI is a computer program that calculates pi to a specified number of digits after the decimal point - up to a maximum of 32 million. It uses FFT arithmetic and Borwein's quartically-convergent algorithm and is a Windows port of the program used by Yasumasa Kanada in 1995 to compute Pi to 232 digits. Super PI uses x87 floating-point unit, so it favors processors with good FPU performance, such as AMD Athlon 64 and Intel Core 2.

Nothing in particular here; SuperPI 1M benchmark shows that the Striker II NSE is consistent in performance with other motherboards in the category.
