Gigabyte P67A-UD7 Review
Obviously the whole graph is somewhat compressed because the inclusion of the AES instruction set in the latest 32nm Intel CPUs gives a much larger result than the rest.
However, the UD7 once again comes through with flying colours. Not only do we get the highest AES result we've seen, but the other three tests give results far in advance of those on the reference Intel board and comprehensively out-perform a stock HT enabled i7-2600K.
A couple of things worth noting here. Firstly the UD7, as expected, shows it's not just a pretty face by being an exceptional performer as well. More generally though the i5-2500K actually gives a much closer set of results than the 2600K that seems to struggle in the read testing, and far beyond the triple-channel X58 results of the i7-950.
