ASUS P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt (Intel Z77) Motherboard Review - CPU Benchmarks

ASUS P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt (Intel Z77) Motherboard Review

It's been a while since we've seen an ASUS board, but today we're checking out the P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt.

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.

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.

Out of the box the performance of the ASUS P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt is extremely strong.

 

You can see stock numbers have it ahead of the competition in pretty much all tests. Over 30 seconds separates the fastest board here which is the ASUS P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt and the slowest one under Hyper Pi. Overclocking as always brings with it a nice boost in performance, and you can see under Hyper Pi, we're almost able to break into the 11 minute mark, when overclocked.
