CPU Performance

The only other board we have to test with is our control board; the ASUS Crosshair V Formula. Despite how high-end that board is, the 970A Krait holds a demanding lead.

WPrime

wPrime is a leading multithreaded benchmark for x86 processors that tests your processor performance by calculating square roots with a recursive call of Newton’s method for estimating functions. wPrime is a free utility that is available for download here.

At stock, the 970A Krait is lagging behind, but when overclocked it takes a good lead.

SiSoft Sandra

The SiSoft Sandra Dhrystone and Whetstone benchmarks are widely used measures of compute power and performance for a wide array of real world usage scenarios. You can find out more details on these tests here or download SiSoft Sandra here.

Performance here is on par with the ASUS board, and when overclocked it takes a small lead.
