MSI Z87M MATX Gaming Motherboard Review
Within certain limits you will always get roughly the same performance when the components are so identical. It's why we focus upon even small gains. In PC Mark Vantage the particular highlights for the Z87M Gaming at stock are the Productivity, which then gives a very good PC Mark score overall. With the overclock in place the biggest leap from any other test is definitely the gaming result which is significantly higher than anything that's gone before.
Moving to PC Mark 7 things are considerably closer throughout all of the results, although the computation result isn't the best we've seen, the overall score actually balances perfectly with the other high-end motherboards in our graphs.
