Biostar TPower i55 Review

Vantage and Dirt 2

Biostar TPower I55

PC Mark Vantage

Nicely following on from what I was saying on the previous page, in the more real-world test of PC Mark Vantage the difference between the Biostar TPower I55 and P55a becomes zero. The productivity benchmark in particular throws up a huge win for the Biostar, but that's nearly wholly thanks to the extra write speed of our new RAM compared to when we tested the MSI.

Nonetheless, away from the synthetic marks and into the real world, the difference is marginal.

3D Mark Vantage

On to our couple of 3D benchmarks for the day, given that these are far more GPU dependant than the underlying system, the results nicely mirror our PC Mark test. The leading two P55 boards are inseperable, and the overclock, albeit mild, gives a nice 1800 point increase.

Dirt 2

Finally Dirt 2 shows that as an all-rounder the Biostar gets it done, only being a couple of frames away from the Fuzion.
