Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H Review

Sandra Cryptography

In the Sandra cryptography bandwidth test the UD4H performs at the level one would expect both in the stock and overclocked results, due to the clockspeed heavy nature of the benchmark. If anything it emphasises how great the GD65 is.

CineBench

The eternal battle between stock performance and overclocked performance is highlighted perfectly in Maxon’s CineBench R11.5. At stock the UD4H is only akin to the D3HP, that is half a point behind our other stock results. Half a point in CineBench is an enormous amount. Yet with the 4.9GHz overclock in place it gives us the highest score we’ve yet attained from our i7-4770K. A tale of two results indeed.
