Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3P Review

PC Mark Vantage

Benchmarking all this hardware can become a little routine now and again. Once you've tested 50 setups all around the same speed and using the same bits and bobs you can get such a good feel for the result that it's easy to become a little blasé because modern components are so well tested that it's nearly impossible to be surprised.

Consider us surprised. There is clearly a sweet-spot of components here. Sure the IRST-enhanced storage has a large part to play, but the UD3P is making the most of what is available to it and, in PC Mark Vantage at least, putting everything else on our graph to shame.

If ever there was a doubt about what a difference a hundred pounds worth of SSD can make to the overall performance of your system, this result expels those. Remember this isn't making do with a tiny SSD drive for the OS and a slow one for storage. We've got a full 1TB drive running at these speeds.
