MSI P67A-GD65 Review

Crysis Warhead

Well it's still perfectly playable. Although the MSI doesn't reach the heights of the rest of our benchmarks it still keeps Crysis ticking away about 60 FPS. It's a bit of a double-edged sword as it remains playable, but is still 6 or 7 frames behind what we'd expect. That could just be Crysis Warhead being its usual strange self though.

Alien vs Predator

Thankfully we can end on a positive note as the heavily GPU dependant Alien vs Predator benchmark gives us very level results throughout all our tests. Even if the GD65 at stock trails, it's only a tenth of a frame, so nothing that isn't within error tolerance.

I am pretty disappointed by the results of this board. I expected it to be a great board at that price level. Well maybe next time MSI.Quote

So perhaps the truly brilliant OC Genie will be the solution to the poor stock performance?

I feel crushed I read in all these other sites about how awesome it was, but after seeing this I feel bitterly disappointed as well as being confused how it fared to badly here.

EDIT: Quite a few people seem to get 4.2GHz clock, so I guess MSI is being extremely conservative, in case someone got a half completed chip or something.Quote
