Gigabyte Z68X UD5 B3 Review

PC Mark 7

As PC Mark 7 is so brand-spanking new we’ve obviously only got today’s sample for our results. However you can see that in pure workflow terms the IRST provides a bigger benefit than overclocking does! Even so, using both together (and why wouldn’t you) gives us a 66% increase in score over a stock setup. Outstanding.


PC Mark Vantage

We have to say we’re pleased that PC Mark 7 has been released. Not only has it removed the epilepsy inducing tests of PC Mark Vantage, but frankly our PC Mark Vantage graph is becoming unwieldy.

At stock the Z68X UD5 is frankly a disappointment giving some of the poorest scores we’ve seen from our Core i5 2500K setup. Thankfully it takes to an overclock well and uses the IRST to get right up there with our Best In Class P67A, the ASUS Sabertooth.
