Once again the ever-reliable Lavalys Everest Benchmark suite gets called into action. With a suite of benchmarks that test the major aspects of the architecture we're going to use the CPU and Memory benchmarks today. The CPU benchmark were around the level that was reached in the previous test of this chip, although the Biostar did provide a small increase over the 785G that was on test then. Demonstrating that even at stock speeds this motherboard is no slouch.
The memory tests were very uniform with surprising speeds across all operations.
7Zip is a free archiving utility available in both 32 and 64 bit variants. The built in benchmark was run with default settings of a 32MB dictionary and utilising all four cores of the CPU. Again we saw a very steady set of results with neither the compression nor the decompression showing much variance.
Super Pi is an old standard that is really useful for testing CPUs and not quite so handy for testing motherboards. Although with such strict timing it can highlight huge flaws if there are any. As with our previous results the Biostar TA785GE provided a very solid set of results.
PCMark Vantage 64
PCMark Vantage is a very handy suite of benchmarks that really tests a systems ability to to hand most of the tasks that a user will put it to including application loading and video playback. The Biostar handled this with aplomb demonstrating that it may be mATX and very handy as an HTPC, it's also no slouch as part of a desktop system.
All in all a very fine set of results with no numbers being earth-shattering, but at the same time nothing that set alarm bells ringing either.
