Test Setup

Here is a list of the applications we've used for our testing - most of them are available free for public consumption, although some are popular professional software applications. In all cases, the benchmarks were run three times and until a consistent set of results were achieved and the data presented here are averages of those results.
  • Sisoft Sandra 2009 SP1
  • Lavalys Everest 4.6.1540
  • Crysis v1.21
  • Far Cry 2
  • Half-Life 2: Episode Two
  • PCMark Vantage x64
  • WinRAR 3.71
  • 7-Zip
  • Paint.NET 3.20
  • AutoMKV 0.97.1
  • Cinebench 10 x64
Following demand from the bit-tech community, we have included 7-Zip as well as WinRAR in our benchmarks as it is another popular, free, file compression tool. AutoMKV: 0.97.1 includes a mix of multi and single threading, transcoding video from .VOB to x.264.

On the gaming front, we have introduced Far Cry 2 in addition to Crysis and Half-Life 2: Episode Two to give us a wide range of game engines that cover the latest, greatest and most popular corners of the PC gaming industry. The common ground of Windows Vista x64 with Service Pack 1 gives both the latest version of DirectX as well as 64-bit computing, which benefits a few applications as well as allowing us to address more than 4GB of system memory.
