CPU Test - HyperPi 0.99


Version and / or Patch Used: 0.99





CPU Test - AIDA64


Version and / or Patch Used: 1.00.1035BETA






Starting off with CPU performance, you can see performance out of the GIGABYTE Z97N- GAMING 5 is fairly standard across the board. When it comes to overclocking, you can see a slight performance increase, but nothing to get excited about. The two i7 4790K processors we have aren't impressive when it comes to overclocking, and it is limiting us when it comes to showing the maximum performance.



System Test - PCMark 8


Version and / or Patch Used: 1.04





System Test - MediaEspresso


Version and / or Patch Used: 6.5




Firing up PCMark 8 and MediaEspresso, you can see that the performance of the GIGABYTE Z97N- GAMING 5 lines up with our other boards for the most part. Again, overclocking brings slight boost in performance, but because of our CPU not being that strong, the overall increase in performance isn't much.
