Synthetic CPU and Memory Tests

SiSoft Sandra 2012

The latest version of SiSoft Sandra offers up a lot of new features including compatibility updates for Sandy Bridge processors, media transcoding enhancements, Blu-Ray, and expanded GPGPU support. 


The P8Z77-V scored over 2% higher than the G1.Sniper M3 in every SiSandra 2012 benchmark and the P8Z77-V's scores are consistent with SiSandra benchmark results from other motherboards sporting Z68 chipsets and using an i5-2500K processor.

The two gaming charts are wrong? Dirt 3 the higher numbers are labeled Min FPS. In Crisis 2 the chart shows that the ASUS bord was slower, but you say it was faster. Which is it?

I’d like to see a report done on the missing in action Asus ThunderboltEX card for use with the proprietary “TB_Header” on these motherboards.

I mean we know Intel wouldn’t certify the ThunderboltEX card but that kind of leave the whole thing up in the air. Were the earlier motherboards released with optional Thunderbolt support advertising on the packaging or manual? If so that could puts Asus in a bad legal situation given their inability to deliver the product.

Does the Zalman CNPS12X Cooler block out the 1st RAM position on this board? It looks like you have the RAM sticks in the blue slots (positions 2 & 4 starting from the CPU and counting away from the CPU) vs. the black slots.

Yeah I'm also interested to know if the cooler blocks any of the memory slots.
