Biostar TPower i55 Review

Sandra and CineBench

Biostar TPower I55

SiSoft Sandra

If the results from Everest showed the stock I55 lagging a little behind, then in the Processor Arithmetic test of SiSoft Sandra it's clearly bringing up the rear. Everything takes a considerable bump when overclocked as to be expected, but in vanilla form it's just disappointing.

On to the Processor Multimedia test and the results are pretty much the same. Disappointing at stock with a healthy boost when overclocked. The Int x16 test which is the purest speed test here really shows how much of a lead the P55a has over the Biostar TPower I55.

CineBench

CineBench has given the Biostar the rather dubious honour of the lowest CPU score we've got from this chip yet. Now don't let you get carried away with that as the differences are marginal at best, but nonetheless we'd not seen under 5.1 before.
