Out of the box, you can see our ASRock and GIGABYTE motherboards that are using our new i7-4790K processor perform pretty closely to each other. Overclocking gives us a bit of a boost in both of our tests.

Looking above, you can see PCMark 8 and MediaEspresso performance between our two boards with our i7-4790K is very similar, with not much separating them. Throwing overclocking into the mix, you can see a slight performance boost in both of our benchmarks, with our MediaEspresso encode coming in at 14 minutes and 23 seconds.
