Passmark Benchmark Results

PassMark PerformanceTest is a PC hardware benchmark utility that allows a user to quickly assess the performance of their computer and compare it to a number of standard 'baseline' computer systems. The Passmark PerformanceTest CPU tests all benchmark the mathematical operations, compression, encryption, SSE, and 3DNow! instructions of modern processors.

In our tests there were several areas of concentration for each benchmark, which are combined into one compound score. This score is referred to as the CPU Mark, and is a composite of the following tests: Integer Math, Floating Point Math, Find Prime Numbers, SSE/3DNow!, Compression, Encryption, Image Rotation, and String Sorting. For this review, we've also decided to run the memory benchmark, which results in a composite score based on the following tests: small block allocation, cached read, uncached read, write performance, and large block allocation.


The Passmark CPU test is the only one of the benchmarks we used to test the M4A785TD-M EVO that it didn't outperform the the G41 platform. For some reason, the D41, paired with the Pentium Dual Core 2.6GHz processor, outperformed the M4A785TD-M EVO with the Athlon-II X2-255 at 3.1GHz. I am not quite sure why this is, and I ran the test several times to see if I was missing something. The average score always came out under the G41 system. In the memory marks, even with the DDR3 memory, the M4A785TD-M EVO comes out only slightly ahead of the G41 platform. I can only assume that the Passmark tests prefer the Intel chipset over the AMD. The memory test results are pretty standard for Passmark, which rarely fluctuates much in score based on the increase in RAM speeds. Something interesting here, while not related to the M4A785TD-M EVO, is the difference in memory marks between the G41 and the P965 Intel systems, even when using the same RAM, running at the same speeds and latency.

- Odd placement of the CPU power connector
It's #ing perfect?
- Large RAM modules may impede CPU Fan
An issue for most boards atm :(
- IGP wont play the latest games
No #? Who expect that from integrated graphics? It gives you graphical interfaces and can even play full hd movies very well. For anything more a dedicated card must be bought. This isn't a con, the oddly powerful igp is a pro.
- Needs more Fan connectors
Agreed, even thou it isn't very expensive or hard to buy (or make) molex to fan...
