Gigabyte X79S-UP5 Review
The Rampage IV Extreme review used 1866MHz RAM and you can really see the difference that extra 266MHz makes with the UP5 results. Our 3930K review had 2133MHz RAM and it's right on a par with the UP5. The combination of the Xeon, with its MCE benefits, and the ECC RAM really delivers a score that you would never imagine from its 1333MHz RAM. Clockspeed isn't everything boys and girls.
The latest Catalyst drivers have really given the OpenGL performance in Cinebench a massive boost, so to be fair you really can't draw any firm conclusions from our results in that particular part of the test. Although the UP5 certainly hasn't got any gremlins. Oddly the CPU score isn't as impressive, barely able to match our i7-3930K result, and nowhere near the i7-3960X on the Rampage IV Extreme.
