The range of real world, practical peforming testing done for most systems was skipped here for the simple reason that the results will be virtually identical to those already recorded for the Jetway NF9C-2600, a similar board which uses the same chipset and a CPU clocked slightly slower. Please check the results on page 5 of our recent Jetway review. Some differences will show up due to the use of the Intel SSD in the Logic Supply compared to the 2.5" HDD with the Jetway board.

Video Test Clips
1080p | 24fps | ~10mbps
1080p | 24fps | ~14mbps
H.264: Space is a 1080p x264 clip encoded from
the Blu-ray version of an animated short film. It features a hapless
robot trying to repair a lamp on a spaceship.
720p | 25fps | ~2mbps
Man Trailer #1 is the first trailer from the feature film
of the same name. It's a YouTube HD video, though technically it
is not quite 720p.
Real-world Benchmark Test Details
- Eset NOD32: In-depth virus scan of a folder containing 32 files of
varying size, several of which are archives with many files within them..
- WinRAR: Archive creation with a folder containing 68 files of varying
size (less than 50MB).
- iTunes: Conversion of an MP3 file to AAC (48KHz, 256kbps).
- TMPGEnc Xpress: Encoding a 1-minute long XVID AVI file to VC-1 (1280x720,
Our first test procedure is designed to determine the overall system power
consumption at various states (measured using a Seasonic Power Angel). To stress
CPUs we use either Prime95 (large FFTs setting) or CPUBurn depending on which
produces higher system power consumption. To stress the GPU, we use ATITool
or FurMark, which ever application is more power demanding.
Our second test procedure is to run the system through a video test suite featuring
a variety of high definition clips. During playback, a CPU usage graph is created
by the Windows Task Manger for analysis to determine the average CPU usage.
High CPU usage is indicative of poor video decoding ability. If the video (and/or
audio) skips or freezes, we conclude the GPU (in conjunction with the processor)
is inadequate to decompress the clip properly. Power consumption during playback
of high definition video is also recorded.
Lastly, we run a short series of performance benchmarks a few real-world
applications as well as synthetic tests.
All nonessential pre-installed software is removed prior to testing, and certain
services and features like Superfetch and System Restore are disabled to prevent
them from affecting our results. Aero glass is left enabled if supported. We
also make note if energy saving features like Cool'n'Quiet and SpeedStep do
not function properly.
