Looking at memory performance, you can see that the GIGABYTE Z97N- GAMING 5 performs well overall. GIGABYTE boards tend to offer stronger write performance, and you can see that here with our three GIGABYTE boards coming out ahead of the ASUS and ASRock options.

Looking at our gaming performance, you can see the numbers are where you'd expect them to be. At stock, we can see that they pretty much line up with all of our other boards here. When it comes to overclocking, we can see a slight performance boost at the lower resolutions, with no real change seen at the highest.
