ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0 Motherboard Testing:
PCMark 8 is the latest iteration of Futuremark's popular PCMark system performance tool. This version is designed for use on Windows 7 and 8 PCs and features a combination of 5 different test suites to accurately measure the performance of all PCs from laptops to desktops.
SiSoft Sandra 2014 is a diagnostic utility and synthetic benchmarking program. Sandra allows you to view your hardware at a higher level to be more helpful. For this benchmark, I will be running a broad spectrum of tests to gauge the performance of key functions of the CPUs.
With the two boards being so similar in build and final overclocked speed these results are no surprise. I expect them to continue to be neck and neck for essentially all of the tests, with the slight edge going to the Gigabyte board on average in the overclocked tests since it managed to run about 15 MHz faster. It's not much of a difference, but it's about the only differentiating performance feature between it and the ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0.
