To sum it up, we have revamped our test suite a bit to update the tests to the latest versions available for each test and added CineBench to the test suite. Updating the test system took a lot of time benchmarking but it is more relevant to use the latest software available to test the motherboards in the first place. While some may argue Sysmark is useless, it can give an overall system performance metric and the latest version supports Windows 7. There are few Professional rendering benchmarks and thatís where SpecViewPerf comes in. Overall I am pleased with the update.
