GIGABYTE G1.Killer Sniper 5 Intel Z87 Motherboard Review
SiSoftware Sandra 2013
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: The memory bandwidth performance differences between the GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 5 and the ECS Z87H3-A2X were negligible. Though the G1.Sniper 5 was a hair above the ECS board with a bandwidth of 28.13 GB/s on the Integer Memory bandwidth and 28.17 GB/s on the Float Memory bandwidth compared to 28.07GB/s and 28.17.
