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 2017 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 mostly identical across all X299 motherboards that were tested.
The SuperO C9X299-PG300 is the only X299 motherboard we have tested since Intel has released its Spectre and Meltdown patches for X299. To complete testing fairly we prevented Windows from updating as running the same tests on an up to date version of Windows 10 resulted in a 0-5% performance deficit in some benchmarks.
