At first glance this mainboard doesn’t seem to differ from the previously tested MSI Z68A-GD80 (B3) except for the new standard support. However, this is not quite the case. The mainboard only look similar. Their features and functionality, as well as operation turned out completely different. Some of the innovations proved to be really great, some turned out more of a disappointment.
Now let’s run the same tests with the CPU and memory overclocked. You can see the difference in the system parameters in the following table:
It is not surprising that MSI Z68A-GD80 (G3) mainboard is mostly the last one, because our CPU overclocked 200 MHz less on it compared with the other testing participants. As a result you can notice its performance being a little lower, but the difference is insignificant: it is about 4% in most computational tasks.
