Asus P7P55-M P55 mATX Motherboard

Gaming tests

 
Crysis is without doubt one of the most visually stunning and hardware-challenging games to date. By using CrysisBench - a tool developed independently of Crysis - we performed a total of 5 timedemo benchmarks using a GPU-intensive pre-recorded demo. To ensure the most accurate results, the highest and lowest benchmark scores were then removed and an average calculated from the remaining three.
 

 
 

 
Call of Duty 4 is a stunning DirectX 9.0c based game that really looks awesome and has a very full feature set. With lots of advanced lighting, smoke and water effects, the game has excellent explosions along with fast game play. Using the in-built Call Of Duty features, a 10-minute long game play demo was recorded and replayed on each of the GPU's using the /timedemo command a total of 5 times. The highest and lowest FPS results were then removed, with an average being calculated from the remaining 3 results.
 
 
 


Ubisoft has developed a new engine specifically for Far Cry 2, called Dunia, meaning "world", "earth" or "living" in Parsi. The engine takes advantage of multi-core processors as well as multiple processors and supports DirectX 9 as well as DirectX 10. Running the Far Cry 2 benchmark tool the test was run 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being omitted and the average calculated from the remaining 3.
 

 
Results Analysis

Once more we see that both motherboards had little effect on the gaming benchmarks with both of them being identicly placed throughout our gaming suite.

Very decent, £90.

With it having better memory handling, on the surface, I was expecting it to be that much better than the msi in the following benchies. Didn't happen tho. These things tend to be illogical.

Full 4 ghz+ expectation on a small mobo too.

Weening away from the necessity of a full ATX for everyday+ builds, and I like it.

Good stuff.

See ASUS still like the rolly cardboard packing.Quote

Mr. Smith
I'm with Rast - the future for me is small builds matx/mitx.

There are plenty of decent matx mobos capable of performing exactly like an atx mobo.

Nice reviewQuote
