GIGABYTE's Z170X-UD5 holds its own against other motherboards. Sometimes motherboard manufacturers will tune boards towards better scores in one area which results in a decrease in performance in another. Overall, the Z170X-UD5 does top the charts in a few benchmarks. All around it has good performance and doesn't seem to be tuned for any single purpose (CPU, memory, or GPU).

 

Some motherboard reviewers put a lot of weight into motherboard CPU, memory, and GPU benchmarks, but for me CPU, memory, and GPU benchmarks on motherboards should be more about finding anomalies and I do that at standard settings (4.5G in graphs). I believe that the system IO benchmarks on the next page are more important and they do tend to differ more from one model to the next.
