CPU Test - HyperPi 0.99


Version and / or Patch Used: 0.99





CPU Test - AIDA64


Version and / or Patch Used: v4.30.2900






Comparing the two platforms, you can see that CPU performance is quite similar between them both. When it comes to overclocking, you can see that we get a nice performance increase from both the Auto Tune and the manual overclock.



System Test - PCMark 8


Version and / or Patch Used: 2.0.191





System Test - MediaEspresso


Version and / or Patch Used: 6.5




Out of the box, you can see that both the Z97 and Z87 perform very close to each other with little difference being seen in both benchmarks. We can see a bump in performance with the Auto Tune shaving a little under 2 minutes from our encode time.


Manual overclocking then drops the overall process even more and continues to push PCMark 8 performance higher.
