HyperPi and AIDA64 see CPU numbers that sit in the middle of the pack of our other X99 boards. Overclocking yields some truly massive performance gains, though, thanks to that massive increase in clock speed. You can really see the huge difference the overclock makes to performance.

 

System Test - PCMark 8

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.04

Looking at PCMark 8 and MediaEspresso, you can see the numbers are nearly identical to the MSI X99S GAMING 9 AC, which lags slightly behind our other offerings. Although, at most you're talking about 20 seconds when it comes to our encode time.

 

Overclocking just puts the performance on another level. Thanks to that really strong clock increase, you can see the PCMark scores jump, and the encode times get slashed.
