ASUS WS C246M Pro Motherboard Performance
We wanted to show a bit of performance data from the solution. With the Intel Core i3-8300, we have an extremely low cost solution that supports ECC memory.
AIDA64 Memory Test
AIDA64 memory bandwidth benchmarks (Memory Read, Memory Write, and Memory Copy) measure the maximum achievable memory data transfer bandwidth.
Here are our Cinebench R15 results:
In our single socket Cinebench tests the Quad-Core Intel Core i3 8300 has a hard time reaching AMD Threadripper 1900X 8 core/16 thread numbers. We will be adding in more systems to fill out this benchmark.
SPECworkstation3 measures the 3D graphics performance of systems running under the OpenGL and Direct X application programming interfaces.
SPECworkbench is a very demanding benchmark that takes a considerable amount of time to complete. Up until this point we have only used the GPU Compute part for our GPU testing, we will continue using full benchmark runs in future reviews. The main take away here is even with an entry level system using a Quad-Core processor the ASUS Turbo RTX2060 Blower we used for a GPU gave this system a significant boost in performance.
PassMark Performance Test allows you to benchmark a PC using a variety of different speed tests; it tests the entire PC and all its components.
Overall, the ASUS WS C246M Pro performed exceptionally well given its cost optimized configuration in our testing.
Next, we are going to look at the power consumption before getting to our final thoughts.
