Memory Performance

The memory performance of the Crosshair II Formula is average when compared to the M3A32-MVP Deluxe when testing in PCmark05 and EVEREST. The results were satisfactory, though we were hoping that the Nvidia nForce 780a SLI chipset would be superior to the cheaper AMD 790FX chipset.

The Core 2 Quad Q9450 spanks the Phenom X4 9850 processors in Super PI, making both the 16MB and 32MB calculations in significantly less time. Performance-wise the Crosshair II Formula appears to be on par with the M3A32-MVP Deluxe in this test.
