ASUS, BIOSTAR, GIGABYTE, and MSI Intel Z77 Motherboard Round Up
SiSoftware Sandra 2012 Sp3 Memory Bandwidth
The Sisoftware Sandra 2012 SP3 benchmark utility just came out a few weeks
ago and we have started to include it in our benchmarking. Sandra 2012 comes with
support for Virtualisation (Virtual PC/Server, Hyper-V, VMware) and
GPGPU (OpenCL, DirectX 11 DirectCompute), but today we will be using the
program to look at memory and CPU performance!
Benchmark Results: All four of our Intel Z77 motherboards had a very comparable performance between them. The MSI Z77A-GD65 took the top spot by a small margin over the GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H. The BIOSTAR TZ77XE4 had the lowest performance out of the four boards but it was only ~.5Gb/s which is only a ~2% margin.
