7-Zip is an open source Windows utility for manipulating archives. We measure the Total Rating performance using the built-in benchmark tool. The test stresses all CPU cores to 100% and shows an affinity for memory bandwidth.
Cinebench is an application which renders a photorealistic 3D scene to benchmark a computer’s rendering performance, on one CPU core, all CPU cores or using the GPU. We run the test using the all core CPU mode.
Sandra Processor Arithmetic
SiSoft Sandra 2018 is a multi-function utility program that supports remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features for PCs, servers, mobile devices and networks. We run the application’s processor arithmetic test to gauge the CPU performance on each tested motherboard.
CPU performance is as expected for the ASUS mini-ITX board and reflects the fact we test with Intel stock turbo limits, where this option is available. The fact there are only two memory modules available has some impact on the 7Zip test where both mini-ITX motherboards score slightly lower in the compression test.
For a rough guide of how CPU performance compares to other platforms please see our most recent reviews for the following platforms:
Please note software and driver versions have changed hence why we caution that results are not directly comparable.
