Gigabyte Z87-D3HP Review


Obviously wPrime relies heavily on the combination of raw clock speed and memory bandwidth, rather than taking advantage of any instruction sets, so the results bear out the 4.6GHz nature of our overclock. We think you could probably write an equation to work out how quickly it would run the test for a given clock speed.

x264 v5

Always trying to keep up with the times we've switched from the Version 4 of the x264 Benchmark to v5, and as you can see the results aren't comparable so think of this graph as an interim to demonstrate the differences in the results you can expect. It's also worth noting if you like to play along at home and wonder why your Q6600 is outperforming our setup.

Man I love the new look of these Gigabyte boards! Makes me want to buy one just for that! About time they fancied up their boards a little. I know we're not supposed to care about such frivolous things but I cant help myself.

Looks good as the latest ad on the side panels of the forum too. Nicely done Gigabyte!Quote

Nice review. Will you be reviewing the ud5h?

I'm looking at that board at the moment.Quote

Good review ... reading through I noticed this complaint:

"In fact the only thing we dislike is the vertical SATA ports which, regardless of price-point, are unacceptable."

Not the first time I've seen this but as a newb I have no idea why this is a problem ... can anyone elucidate? Thanks, in advance.Quote

It's just a matter of making the computer looking cleaner/better cable management and with vertical SATA ports you can't do it as easy. Performance is exactly the same if you were worried by that.Quote

Looks nice, but I have to say I have lost some confidence in Gigabyte recently. Their UEFI bios upgrades for slightly older boards (which are admittedly Beta..) are junk with less functionality than the BIOS. Also, after 3 years of service my GA-Z68XP-UD3 shat itself for no good reason.

I know all manufacturers have boards that fail, but it does cause you to lose confidence when it happens to you personally. DOA is sometimes expected and accepted, but a failure after a few years...

.. I digress, good review TTL.Quote
