ECS L337 GANK Domination Z87H3-AX Golden Testing:
Cinebench 11.5 is useful for testing your system, CPU, and OpenGL capabilities using the software program, CINEMA 4D. We will be using the default tests for this benchmark.
X.264 Benchmark: This benchmark is used to measure the time it takes to encode a 1080p video file into the x264 format. The default benchmark is used with an average of all four tests on each pass taken as the result.
AIDA64 Extreme Edition 3.0 is a software utility designed to be used for hardware diagnosis and benchmarking. I will be using the Cache and Memory benchmark tool to measure memory performance.
The ECS Z87H3-AX Golden did well with Cinebench 11.5, coming in first. With X.264 it comes in behind the pack, but results are close. AIDA64 3.0 testing reveals some shocking results for the ECS board. Read and Copy speeds are both much lower than the other boards. The results are very similar to those from the ECS Z87H3-A2X Extreme that was tested earlier in the year.
