MSI 890GXM-G65 Review
Demonstrating how well the 890 Chipset works in all situations, Everest Ultimate gives us consistent results in both the CPU and Memory tests. When overclocked we have a nice linear improvement from the G65. This really is a surprisingly powerful bit of kit.
7Zip is a freeware decompression utility that can handle every type of compressed archive. Although the compression test suffers a little at stock settings we still have a good final score. The overclock is handled particularly well giving over 10000 across the full gamut of tests.
CineBench is based upon Maxon's industry proven Cinema4D rendering engine. Despite the CPU overclock not giving a massive score, although being benefitial, the OpenGL test really shows that a bit of horsepower allows the 5850 to stretch its legs and the G65 is more than capable of keeping up.
3D Mark Vantage
Ah Vantage. Thankfully nearing the end of its testing life. Hopefully the next version will be better. Anyway, we have a good showing here from the G65. Often a CPU overclock doesn't make much of a difference to the final score, but here we have a good result at stock settings with the MSI G65 showing it's capable of being quite a gaming rig even on mid-range hardware. When overclocked all the tests show significant improvement. Impressive stuff.
