3DMark hands EVGA’s X58 3X SLI a lead that’s so small most readers won’t be able to see it in the charts.
PCMark prefers the P6T, while the TPower X58’s inability to run our memory at DDR3-1866 pushes it to the bottom.
Putting aside any differences in base clock, Sandra’s CPU test should be a great indicator of any BIOS affect on Intel Turbo mode implementation.
Of course base clock is important too, so Asus and MSI take first and second place in Sandra’s Arithmetic and Multimedia benchmarks. The boards with the lowest base clock, the X58 SuperComputer and LANParty DK X58-T3eH6 fall to the bottom.
With its slightly overclocked base clock, the P6T leads in memory bandwidth. Unable to run our RAM at its full timings, the X58 Platinum SLI falls to the middle in spite of its higher-than-standard clock. Biostar’s TPower X58 memory bandwidth shows the handicap of its required DDR3-1600 setting.
