Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H Review

wPrime95

The purity of wPrime shines through with the 32M score being right on the money. Of course not everything can be as simple as we'd desire and the overclock is about 30 seconds slower than it should be, if a similarly overclocked i7-2600K is the guide.

Unigine 0xAA

Finally we reach the first of our three tests in which we'll also be running with the Lucid MVP on. Straight away the result is right on the money and our overclock helps keep the minimum frame rate much higher than it would be at stock. However, take a look at the result with the Lucid switched on. A 37 FPS improvement is exceptionally high, and at no image quality reduction as far as we could tell.

Another good review though I'm not sure IB was worth your (plural) time! I was so hoping that the early reports of heat and similar overclock outputs would be wrong but alas there is very little to pick between these 1155 chips.Quote

^^ Bet you can't wait. Am I right in saying that this board is in direct competition with the P8Z77 deluxe from Asus?Quote
