Asus vs Gigabyte Intel H67 Shoot Out

AIDA Extreme Edition

Returning to its roots by re-estabilishing the AIDA name, the latest iteration of the popular benchmark suite now includes optimisations over previous editions. With this in mind, remember not to compare these results against those conducted with older Everest software. 

 

CPU Queen

CPU Queen is based on branch prediction and the misprediction penalties that are involved.

This particular test shows an evenly matched scenario.

CPU Photoworxx

PhotoWorxx as the name may suggest tests processors by means of invoking functions that are common to Photo Manipulation including Fill, Flip, Crop, Rotate, Difference and Colour to B&W conversion. 

Photoworxx however identified a sizeable difference in performance between the two configurations. That said, this test suffers from a larger than normal error margin.

CPU ZLib

This is an integer based benchmark that will test the CPU and Memory by means of the CPU ZLib compression library. 

Normally is returned briefly showing both Asus and Gigabyte H67s on par.

 CPU AES

AES is a widely used data encryption standard. Many iterations of the Intel Core processor family now include instruction sets specifically for this form of cryptography, resulting in very impressive figures.

The performance lead returns to Asus in the AES test.

Next up, Image rendering and more system wide benchmarks.

So you're looking to build an entry level Sandy Bridge computer; which H67 board will win?

Grrr no overclocking, disgraceful little motherboard.

No integrated graphics for me then :'(

Co9uld it be possible that CPU OCing will be available via a bios upgrade with these boards?

Doubt it, I think the H67 motherboards are aimed at people that don't know or want to overclock, so they will purchase the non "K" CPUs.

I like the look of these (not just these two) for building pcs for other people.

The price may massage, but it all looks nice and handy to me.

A bit pricey imo for a board that is not going to appeal to basically the majority of the people with some knowledge of PC's apart from maybe people whom make/build PC's for customers. But still if I was building a computer for a simpleton whom only wanted to use it for internet/emails etc I would go with a cheaper board.

Edit*

Although saying that supporting GPU for a internet/email and some simple games user could completely eliminate the need to buy a graphics card which would save an extra £100ish but does it add up? £50 Mobo, £70 CPU & £80 GPU or £120 Mobo, £150 CPU £200 vs £270 for a everyday pc Ofcourse the sandybridge option will run smoother but is it worth the extra £70 :x!

This review lists your test setup as using Mushkin Redline DDR3 @ 1333MHz but it looks like Mushkin Redline DDR3 is rated for 1600MHz. Is it possible to run the RAM at 1600MHz (or higher) on these boards? From what I have read, the H67 chipset can allow memory OCs but I haven't been able to tell if any of the mobo makers have allowed it yet.
