We measured processing performance using PCMark05 Professional program. PCMark05 Professional measures the system performance by running several tests. The System batch, which was the one we used, performs the following tests: HDD XP Startup, Physics and 3D, 2D Transparent Window, 3D Pixel Shader, Web Page Rendering, File Decryption, 2D Graphics Memory – 64 lines, HDD General Usage and three multithreading tests. The results are given in a PCMark05 specific unit.
As we explained on the second page we had to set manually the external bus clock rate as this motherboard comes factory-overclocked and because of this you may find higher results for this motherboard on other reviewing websites. We don’t think comparing an overclocked motherboard with non-overclocked motherboards to be fair.
Comparing all motherboards with their memories running at 800 MHz, Abit IP35 Pro achieved the same performance level of all other motherboards we included in our comparison.
When we set our memories to run at 1,066 MHz we saw no significant performance improvement on this test.
And comparing all motherboards with their memories running at 1,066 MHz, Abit IP35 Pro achieved again the same performance level of all other motherboards we included in our comparison.
