Biostar Hi-Fi Z97WE Testing:

3DMark: The recently released version of Futuremark's popular 3DMark suite is designed to provide a wider range of the user base the ability to make a comparative analysis of the gaming prowess of their systems from entry level PCs to notebooks to extreme gaming PCs.



  • Default test settings
  • Cloud Gate
  • Fire Strike




















DiRT 3 is the third iteration of this racing series. Published and developed by Codemasters, this game uses the EGO 2.0 game engine and was released in the US on PC in May of 2011.


  • 8x MSAA
  • Ultra Settings



Part first-person shooter, part survival horror, Metro: Last Light is the follow-up to the extremely popular game Metro 2033. Developed by 4A Games and published by Deep Silver, this game uses the 4A game engine. In this game, set a year after the missile strike on the Dark Ones, you continue on as Artyom as he digs deeper into the bowels of the Metro.




  • DirectX 11
  • 4x MSAA
  • Global settings = Very High
  • PhysX = Off
  • DOF = Off




When you look at the gaming performance delivered by each of the Z97 boards in this comparison, the bulk of the load is placed on the GPU, resulting in FPS results that vary by at most 2 FPS; a variance that will not be felt in-game. The 3DMark results show the Biostar Hi-Fi Z97WE performing in the middle of the pack when overclocked.
