GIGABYTE Z68X-UD3H-B3 (Intel Z68) Motherboard Review - CPU Benchmarks Continued

Already impressed with the GIGABYTE Z68X-UD7-B3, we look at the more aggressively priced UD3H version today to see if it can impress, too.

HyperPi is a front end for SuperPi that allows for multiple concurrent instances of SuperPi to be run on each core recognized by the system. It is very dependent on CPU to memory to HDD speed. The faster these components, the faster it is able to figure out the number Pi to the selected length.

 

For our testing we use the 32M run. This means that each of the four physical and four logical cores for the i7 and the four physical cores of the i5 is trying to calculate the number Pi out to 32 million decimal places. Each "run" is a comparative to ensure accuracy and any stability or performance issues in the loop mentioned above will cause errors in calculation.

At stock you can see that our HyperPi score lines up with most of our other stock setups. When overclocked you can see a big boost in performance and really, it's not that far behind the boards that have another 150MHz on it.

AutoGK stands for Auto Gordian Knot; it is a suite of transcoding tools that are compiled into an easy to install and use utility. It allows you to transcode non-protected DVDs and other media to Xvid or Divx format. For our testing purposes we use a non-DRM restricted movie that is roughly 2 hours in length. This is transcoded to a single Xvid AVI at 100% quality.

Under AutoGK we see some good performance from the UD3H and its stock speed was a little quicker than some of our other setups. You can see how much time is shaved off the whole process when we overclock, though.
