MSI P55-GD80 Motherboard

Overall Performance

PCMark Vantage is the latest benchmarking suite from Futuremark. Differing significantly from their 3DMark suites, PCMark performs a series of benchmarks designed to recreate and benchmark scenarios of a PC being used for everyday tasks. Vantage has a Vista only requirement as it actually relies on several different components from the OS in order to run correctly.
Results Analysis
Again we see that the overall performance gains an overclocked setup can achieve when compared to a stock clocked system. The MSI P55-GD80 is certainly a high performing motherboard with some great results. While it remains to be seen how good the motherboard is when compared to other motherboards based on the same chipset I would wage that the P55-GD80 will be up there with the best of them.
Let's head over to the conclusion where I attempt to put today's testing into perspective...

I'll say it before, and I'll say it again. This is one of the best looking boards I've seen!

That's a nice clock from it too.Quote

It's a good mobo with a good review.

£178 is something for the 'con' section for me tbh.

For some reason, since i7, it appears the standard is to have the level of mobos at around £30-50 more expensive than they probably should be.

This could however be the result of 775 mobos just not going away. And if they're at "reasonable" prices, it tends to suggest the manufacturers feel they can "get away with charging" that much more as it's "new technology".

I personally think this is bllx however when the jump between the 2 isn't great.Quote
