MSI Z87M Gaming Testing:
PCMark 7 is the latest iteration of Futuremark's popular PCMark system performance tool. This version is designed for use on Windows 7 PCs and features a combination of 25 different workloads to accurately measure the performance of all PCs from laptops to desktops.
SiSoft Sandra 2013 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 a broad spectrum of tests to gauge the performance of key functions of the CPUs.
Comparing the MSI Z87-GD65 and Z87M Gaming series boards shows that even when shrinking the form factor, MSI's Gaming series boards are delivering similar levels of performance across each of these tests. Something we should see throughout this review.
