Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 Testing:

PCMark 8 is the latest iteration of Futuremark's popular PCMark system benchmarking tool. This version uses a series of industry standard tests in five separate benchmark tests to measure aggregate performance.

 

  
  

 

SiSoft Sandra 2014 is a diagnostic utility and synthetic bench marking program. Sandra allows you to view your hardware at a higher level to be more helpful. For this benchmark, I will be running the overall performance measurement tool that utilizes a series of tests to comprehensively measure system performance.

Overall Score

  

 

Cinebench R15 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.

  
  

 

Looking at these results shows that, when running at stock speeds, the GA-Z170X-UD5 is delivering a lower level of performance. After investigating this, the board keeps the CPU clock multiplier at 40 under multi-threaded loads. This is the Intel design spec, but the competition sets the max turbo frequency by default for all cores. Sporting the lowest stable overclock (although 20MHz shouldn't make a difference really), the overclocked scores also fall a little short.
