GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 (AMD 990FX) Motherboard Review - System Benchmarks

AMD boards tend to come in a bit cheaper as it is, but let's check out the GA-990FXA-UD5 which carries a particularly good looking price.

PCMark 7 includes a range of tests that give different views of your system's performance. In the Advanced Edition you can choose which tests to run. The common use and hardware component tests are unavailable in the Basic Edition.

 

Overall system performance is measured by the PCMark test. This is the only test that returns an official PCMark score. The Lightweight test measures the system capabilities of entry-level systems and mobility platforms unable to run the PCMark test, but it does not generate a PCMark score. Common use performance is measured by the scenario tests - Entertainment, Creativity and Production - each of which results in a scenario score. Hardware component performance is measured by the hardware tests - Computation and Storage - each of which results in a hardware score.

MediaEspresso is a blazingly fast media universal converter that can transcode your videos, photos and music files and out put them to a huge range of portable devices including mobile phones, portable media players and even game consoles. With technologies like Smart Detect, Direct Sync and CyberLink's TrueTheater™ video enhancements, you can not only forget about complicated format, resolution and output settings, but your converted file will come out the other side looking better than when it went in!

Checking out PCMark 7 and MediaEspresso, we again see some strong performance from the board that sits in line with our other 990FX board for the most part. We can again see when overclocked, though, we get a nice little boost in performance with the encode time drop being something that would be appreciated.
