    Application performance with PCMark 2005

    Unfortunately I forgot to take a screenshot for the P5K, but it was in a few tests slightly behind the 975X.

    Conclusion: Overall performance seems to be similar, but the 975X chipset is still ahead of the P35 in terms of bandwidth. HDD performance is identical. I expected P35 with the ICH9 to perform better than the 975X with the much older ICH7. Actually the P35 results are bit disappointing for me. Overclocking with both boards was identical. The E4400 is reaching around 3750 MHz stable with water on the 975X and around 50 MHz less with the P5K. But I guess that has nothing to do with the chispet but with circuitry of the board. The addtional new oc BIOS features Asus has implented on the P5K are nice to play with, but they did not help.

    Thanks for the details and effort! Been waiting ages to see some sort of comparison with the 975X. I'm still wondering how it compares with a 680i, would be similar to the 975X I suppose, so it would be slightly ahead.

    680i is still behind 975x i believe.

    cant wait the X38 which is supposed to support sli officially:D

    Does the P35 run 2 8X pci-e slots for VGA or are the same 4X/16X as the i965 chipset?

    the advantage P35 has over 975X is that it can clock RAM past 600MHz with

    975X maxes out around 550 hence you'll get better results with memory intensive applications


    another thing chainy >>> have you enabled Transaction Boost in bios because that increases RAM bandwidth according to eva2000
    i am yet to test that

    Well thats pretty obvious, is'nt that what Intel designed P35 for? DDR3 bandwidth beyond DDR2 spec

    chainy enable these 2 bios options

    • CPU Voltage Damper - to redue vcore droop
    • Enable Transaction Booster - set to level 0 or 1 (try both)

    retest :)

    all done already, I am playing since a couple of days, no difference :leet: But I will try again. The results are anyway "biased" by the boards as such. The headline is a bit misleading in this respect.

    That is also what I am waiting for. But I fear X38 boards (like 875 and 975 boards) will be very expensive. They will load with every gimmick.

    why they even bother making P35.

    The X38 SHOULD be way better, as long as

    A) DDR3-1600 is supported out of the box - no bios flashes.
    B) PCIe V2 is implemented
    C) Fastest Penryn support into 2008+ (without needing to buy another X38 board with some kind of voltage mod added in) aka. 975XBX/975XBX2:thumbdn: (its a waste of resources)
    D) 8 SATA or more with perhaps ich10 (dont know for sure)

    Id buy another BADAXE board for sure, no second thoughts, if they make it like this BadAxe2.

    Im keeping this BA2 until the next BA3? is released.
