Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 LGA 2011 EATX Motherboard Review
3DMark11 measures your PC’s gaming performance and makes extensive use of all the new features in DirectX 11 including tessellation, compute shaders, and multi-threading.
A reliable and popular benchmark, 3DMark Vantage can provide a good insight into the overall gaming performance of a system.
Dirt 3 is a rallying video game and the third in the Dirt series of the Colin McRae Rally series, developed and published by Codemasters. The game was released in Europe and North America on May 24, 2011.
Crysis 2 is a first-person shooter video game developed by Crytek and published by Electronic Arts in March 2011 for Microsoft Windows. The game is the second installment of the Crysis series and is the sequel to the 2007 video game Crysis and its expansion Crysis Warhead.
The X79-UD5 posted solid performance numbers in 3DMark11, but didn't flex its muscles much over the MSI X79A-GD65 (8D) in 3DMark Vantage, Dirt 3, and Crysis 2. Both of these boards seem to be evenly matched in our synthetic and real-world gaming benchmarks, but the X79-UD5 was a hair quicker than its competition in the same motherboard class.
