CPU & GPU Performance
First test for the Z170X-Gaming 7 and it proves that it is the best with an overall lead and taking an even larger lead when overclocked.
A much smaller lead under stock conditions, but once overclocked, it absolutely dominates again.
Here we see the MSI option take a small point lead but doesn’t stand a chance against the overclocked version.
Motherboards now have such a high bandwidth allowance for the GPU, that there is very little difference between motherboards. Some results are better than others which could be due to improved and matured BIOS and drivers since launch.
There is an extremely small difference between top and bottom here, all within a reasonable allowance and not noticeable by the human eye.
A similar story as with Tomb Raider, very little difference between top and bottom and not noticeable to the human eye.
