Nuclearus Multi Core => 31526
Fritz Chess Benchmark => 35.08 /16837
CrystalMark 2004R3 => 378507
CPU => 9.14 pts
CPU(Single Core) => 1.92 pts
Running Time => 4m 10s
x264 FHD Benchmark => 26.6
PCMark Vantage => 26885
The frequency of 4.8GHz is about 6.7% higher than that of 4.5GHz.
Compared with 4.8GHz, the Fritz Chess Benchmark of 4.5GHz is 7.8% higher in the test, and CINEBENCH R11.5 7.2% higher.
Moreover, the x264 FHD Benchmark is 7.1% higher and FRYRENDER is 6.3% faster.
It seems that the increased CPU frequency will improve the performance accordingly.
However, most of my previous tests use the advanced radiator with overclocking to 4.8GHz.
This time I use the affordable CPU radiator with overclocking to 4.5GHz to test the performance, getting different results in the voltage, power consumption and working performance.
It is hoped to provide reference for the users of medium-level radiator. After all, overclocking to 4.8GHz requires more conditions.
DRAM bandwidth test
DDR3 2400 CL11 12-11-28 2T
ADIA64 Memory Read - 19333 MB/s
Sandra Memory Bandwidth - 19292 MB/s
MaXXMEM Memory-Copy - 22702 MB/s
When installing 4DIMM in the DRAM, the overclocking capability of the same DDR3 will be lowered by one or two levels, which is common for many Z77.
Thus, I set it as DDR2400 2T, which is a stable parameter.
Those who want to achieve the overclocking frequency of DDR3 2400~2600 1T,
it is suggested using 2DIMM which also provides a favorable environment to achieve the purpose in addition to the powerful DDR3.
Moreover, the DRAM bandwidth of Hi-Fi Z77X is two-level lower than that of TZ77XE4, which needs to be enhanced by the newer BIOS in the future.
3D performance test - SPARKLE GTX570 SLI
3DMark Vantage => P45768
FINAL FANTASY XIV
1920 X 1080 => 6244
Unigine Heaven Benchmark 3.0
1920 X 1080 => 101.4 FPS
The bandwidth required by SLI mode is X8 + X8, but the performance might be poorer.
However, sold at this lower price, Hi-Fi Z77X still supports AMD CrossFireX/nVIDIA SLI technology, thus it is a product with rather good specification.
BIOSTAR advertises Hi-Fi Caps and Hi-Fi resistors, and the material adopts the non-polarized capacitor and film resistor.
Equipped with the audio-amplification chipset on the front earphone, it provides the users with better audio quality.
