Gigabyte X58A-UD9 Review

Synthetics Continued

CineBench R11.5

CineBench uses the whole performance capability of the system and so should hopefully put to bed any of the anomalous results we saw on the previous page. Sure enough it's almost impossible to split the UD9 and R3E, with the Gigabyte offering just edging ahead.


wPrime 95

Completely putting to bed any thoughts that the Everest RAM results were anything other than an issue with Everest itself as the UD9 is so new, wPrime really takes a hit from slower RAM and yet here, in wPrime, we saw some of the fastest results we've ever seen. Even allowing for our use of the 980x, 175 seconds for the 1024M test is insanely fast. Nearly sub 6 seconds on the 32M test too. There is no doubt we have performance to spare, with even the mighty R3E being left behind.


PC Mark Vantage

Finally before we move on to our 3D testing, PC Mark Vantage is a great way to test the whole system. If anything the Gigabyte X58A-UD9 stretches an even larger lead over the Rampage 3 Extreme. 1000 points might not seem loads, but at this extreme performance end of the market people will do almost anything for a dozen or so points. So an extra thousand is mighty good.

Best review ever! Really appreciate the effort you and the guys must have gone to for this! Clearly proves that 3-way is good if a little expensive, but 4-way is just stupid for anything except PC Mark really. What a well made board though! Even if that stupid chipset heatsink is a massive gimmick , it's nothing short of awesome! Well done OC3D!

P.S. Love the new watermark btw.Quote

Fantastic, amazing, fabulous, unbelievable, jaw dropping, there is not enough words in the dictionary that would describe this review and videos I enjoyed every minute of it and to be honest I read it twice actually it was better than watching AVATAR in 3d in the cinema, I’m a very critical person by nature but OC3D you deserve a 5 star for this one as for the videos I watched them in 1080p on my 40’’ Samsung to enjoy every single detail there is and it is truly amazing stuff guys and the watermark oh... just lovely truly professional , If it was up to me I'll put this review on the BBC it would definitely be better than watching click, to be honest there is nothing ells I can say to show my appreciation to you guys for giving me a two hour journey of pure enjoyment. I truly love you guys.

Regards to everyone in OC3D even the cleaners if you have any.
