Networking Performance


LAN Speed Test Lite

Killer networking is being adopted more and more by different motherboard vendors. This makes for an interesting comparison between motherboards as the market isn’t saturated by the Intel option. Something that this motherboard offers is two LAN options, 1 Intel and 1 Killer, so we should see a good comparison between the two.

As we can see, the Killer option is superior to the Intel equivalent on this board. That being said, both do not offer the performance we should expect when comparing to the other results.

Passmark Performance Test 8 – Ethernet

A much better result for the Killer option and a more ‘in-line’ result for the Intel option.

Passmark Performance Test 8 – CPU Work Load

I don’t know how Gigabyte has achieved this, but both of the LAN options supported on this motherboard has the lowest CPU usage in the respected categories. The Killer option is a third better off compared to the MSI Z170 Gaming M7.
