Memory performance on the GIGABYTE Z97X-UD5H is strong. You can see it's up compared to the competition, and the write numbers are up by a considerable amount. Overclocking brings a slight increase to the write speed, but as usual, we see that the extra MHz doesn't do much for overall memory performance.

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0

While 3DMark 8 sees little difference between the setups, you can see that Sleeping Dogs sees the GIGABYTE Z97X-UD5H pull out some strong FPS numbers that are then pushed even further when overclocked.
