Gigabyte Z87X-OC Review
The pure CPU based tests of SiSoft Sandra always sort the chaff from the wheat. When the margins between motherboards are so tight, any difference in the bottle-necking of each respective offering is magnified. In the arithmetic test the Z87X-OC is the top of the bunch, with an aggregate of 145.11. Moving to the fractals of the multimedia test and the Z87X-OC is surprisingly second to the Sniper M5. Finally the GD65 Gaming just edges the cryptography bandwidth test.
