GIGABYTE X79S-UP5-Wi-Fi (Intel C606) Motherboard Review - Memory Benchmarks

GIGABYTE X79S-UP5-Wi-Fi (Intel C606) Motherboard Review
It's been a while since we've looked at an X79 Express based motherboard, but this one from GIGABYTE is a little different since it uses the different Intel C606 chipset.

Replacing Everest in our labs is AIDA64. This new testing suite is from the core development team from Lavalys and continues that tradition. The guys have thrown in better support for multithreaded CPUs as well as full 64 bit support. We use this to test memory and HDDs for now, but may find ourselves opening this up to other areas of the motherboard.

Quad Channel numbers have never been as strong as Dual Channel ones when comparing the Z77 and X79 chipset.

 

Here is no different. Looking above you can see we see some great gains when overclocked. This is something that the Z77 doesn't tend to do as strongly with numbers remaining quite similar when we overclock.
