Both systems produce excellent results, but Puget’s Deluge L3 gets the higher score over the Falcon Northwest Mach V.
The Mach V shines in the video test for SYSmark 2007, easily surpassing the Deluge L3’s score.
SYSMark again favors the Mach V in the Productivity test, though this time the Deluge L3’s score is somewhat closer, thanks to the system’s impressive hardware.
Oddly, the Deluge L3 beats out the Mach V in the 3D test. But given the results of the previous two tests, we expected the Mach V to continue the trend of scoring higher.
As expected, the Mach V posts a small margin of victory in the final SYSMark 07 test.
With its overclocked processor, the Deluge L3 sweeps the Sandra CPU benchmark tests, though the Mach V isn’t very far away.
For the memory bandwith test, Sandra clearly favors the Mach V and its slightly higher FSB speed over the Deluge L3.
