ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z Review: Cream of the Crop for AM3+
3D Mark Vantage
To make sure that CPU performance, memory performance, and PCI-E functionality are all properly implemented, I use 3D Mark Vantage. GPU drivers are fully optimized for this benchmark and it helps to show if there are any deficiencies in the subsystems controlled by the motherboard.
The FZ is only just slightly ahead in performance, but it is so little as to be meaningless. The boards are well matched and work as expected.
