CPU Test - AIDA64
Version and / or Patch Used: 1.00.1035BETA
Staring off with our CPU tests, you can see out-of-the-box performance is pretty standard, with the MSI Z97 GAMING 9 AC pretty much lining up with the other Z97 offerings here. Overclocking, you can see, brings a nice boost to performance under both benchmarks.
System Test - PCMark 8
Version and / or Patch Used: 1.04
System Test - MediaEspresso
Version and / or Patch Used: 6.5
Looking at PCMark 8 performance, you can see that the run sits a little lower like the GIGABYTE offering here. As for the work run, that also sits slightly down, but not as much as the Home test. MediaEspresso, however, sees all of our Z97 setups perform quite closely to each other; the MSI Z97 GAMING 9 AC does manage to slightly chalk out a win here. As always, you see overclocking helps shave a few minutes off of our encode time and manages to also give us an excellent boost under PCMark 8.
