Gigabyte Z68X UD5 B3 Review
3D Mark 11
Finally we’ll look at 3D Mark to ensure there are no nasty surprises awaiting us, and sure enough there aren’t.

It’s worth noting that the P-score of Vantage, which is so hopelessly low in resolution and detail that it takes a greater advantage from the underpinning system, seems to really enjoy the IRST to scrape a few extra 3D Marks out. Although of course this dissipates once the GPU load becomes a larger factor.
