Performance

To put the Crosshair V Formula-Z to the test I ran both it and the Asrock Fatal1ty 990FX Professional through our benchmark suite. This way I would have numbers to compare to. Our benchmarks hit a variety of tests but focus the most on real world performance with PCMark and gaming performance with 3DMark and the games benchmarked. As expected, both boards perform on par with each other with each board pulling ahead on a few benchmarks. The small variances are most likely just small differences in driver performance and the margin of error on the benchmarks. What do we learn from the benchmarks? Well we learn that the Crosshair paired up with a GTX 780 and a decent CPU is more than enough to get your game on, putting down numbers in all four games that are more than playable as well as kick ass numbers in 3DMark.
