Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3P Review


Whilst it's possible for an underlying system to get the most of what is available to it, as we've seen from the UD3P, there comes a time when there is no replacement for pure horsepower and so it is with CineBench. Still the Gigabyte isn't blown away, rather it's just not quite as quick as some of the other boards that can get our 2500K up nearer the 5GHz mark.

Compared to the Biostar we reviewed earlier in the week the UD3P really is helped by the ability to shunt the data off to the drive quickly. This has a cumulative effect on the free time it gives the processor as it's not waiting for the cache to be dumped, and so we get a very healthy score.
