Test System

All testing was done using a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro 64-bit version 1709 (Fall Creators Update) and benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running. All components were shared between the two test systems, aside from the CPU and Motherboard of course. NVIDIA driver 388.13 was used for all testing.

    WHY when late next year all new Boards and Chips and new DDR 6 ram will be out and newer SSD that will make this a Dinosaur. I have a whole box of Intel boards from the last 10 years. Still running a I-7 875 and 2500 on 2 K.

      Uhhhh you realize you mean GDDR6 that is for graphics cards. Every chipset will still be on DDR4 next year and probably the year after that at least.
