CPU & GPU Performance
Taking the benchmarks head on and straight into Cinebench. While at stock the performance is slightly behind the Z170X-Gaming 7, it is well within the tolerance for the CPU at being well under 1% less.
Here we see the XPOWER Titanium take the lead, just. When overclocked, the performance is extremely good.
The XPOWER Titanium taking a slightly larger lead here, but again it is well within the tolerances of the CPU.
Moving onto the graphics testing and we can see the XPOWER Titanium in second place. However, much like the CPU testing, the tolerances of the graphics card are present here with such little difference between the top two.
Here we see a larger gap appear, but this could be down to a larger number of reasons such as better optimised drivers or slightly altered game updates. Still, the actual real world difference between top and bottom is so small that you couldn’t tell the difference.
Again it is at the bottom of the pack here, but there is so little difference that you couldn’t tell the difference in the real world.
