Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3P Review

3D Mark Vantage

In keeping with the running theme of how this board seems to outstrip what you'd consider it capable of on pure numbers alone, 3D Mark definitely gets a bit of a boost from the IRST. Being able to get those big textures that little bit faster means that neither the GPU or CPU are twiddling their thumbs and this has a reciprocal effect upon the scores. The Z68 UD5 was the only other board on show with the IRST enabled and it's not a surprise that these two boards top the charts.

3D Mark 11

Relying less upon the old fashioned "huge textures" way that Vantage works, 3D Mark 11 obviously has a smaller increase over the rest of the boards on test. In fact it's pretty much on a par which shows how hard the latest Futuremark bench pushes our GTX570.
