Its now time for the benchmarks. Today we have the GIGABYTE EP45-UD3P against the EP45 Extreme motherboard; both from GIGABYTE, but at different ends of the spectrum just to see if there is any major difference.
As per usual, stock speeds were done with the CPU at its stock clock rate and the DDR2 memory was set to 800MHz, which is the highest that the JEDEC recognises for DDR2. At OC we lowered the multiplier of the CPU to 6x and the memory dividers to 1:1 to prevent the memory and CPU being the limiting factor.

EVEREST Ultimate Edition is an industry leading system diagnostics and benchmarking solution for enthusiasts PC users, based on the award-winning EVEREST Technology. During system optimizations and tweaking it provides essential system and overclock information, advanced hardware monitoring and diagnostics capabilities to check the effects of the applied settings. CPU, FPU and memory benchmarks are available to measure the actual system performance and compare it to previous states or other systems.
First on the list is synthetic memory performance; GIGABYTE has unified its BIOS' so the EP45-UD3 gets the same BIOS tweaks as the Extreme board. To this end at stock both are identical in memory reads and writes. At OC there is only little difference thanks to the EP45-UD3P's high clocking abilities.
