Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H Testing:

LAN performance will be tested via a pair of utilities to gauge the performance of the on board network solutions. The motherboard being tested will be connected via a Gigabit switch to another system with an integrated Gigabit network solution on board.

iPerf: is a small lightweight utility run from the command prompt and can be used to "measure both TCP and UDP performance on a network. IPerf is cross platform software and open source." The test is configured to run for 20 seconds with a window size of 256 KB and four simultaneous streams that should be able to saturate the TCP link on a good NIC.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rightmark Audio Analyzer 6.25 is used to test the sound solution on board each motherboard. Nothing beats a good set of ears and headphones but this is a graphic representation of the capabilities of the installed hardware. Sampling mode is 24bit 44kHz.

All results were very close, but the Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H produced the best results on LAN performance using iPerf. The Ethernet LAN port is an Intel Gigabit version with high ESD Protection; this is to help keep the system protected from electrical surges and direct lightning strikes according to Gigabyte. RightMark Audio Analyzer shows better than average distortion and good frequency response.
