Performance

So for performance testing, I ran through our test suite just to make sure there weren’t any big variances or issues with the H270F. I was also really curious if it would hang with the Z270 boards. What I found was interesting though. You see when I first setup our testbench I turn on XMP well when going through everything for our testing I found out that the H270F bumps your memory back down to 2400MHz even with XMP. This isn’t an overclocking board but the specifications were confusing on this one. They list up to 3000MHz but then right below that they also mention that the chipset is limited to 2400MHz with Kaby Lake and 2100MHz with Skylake CPUs. That’s not a big deal, but it is confusing. Anyhow the end result was all of my testing was run at 2400MHz where our Z270 boards were all at 2666MHz. This actually didn’t translate into too much of a gap on most tests except PCMark where the score dropped down 500 points. I took a closer look at the PCMark results and it was actually only one of the individual benchmarks that were different with the Writing benchmark having an average of 5.34 seconds where it was 3.26 seconds on the Z270 boards. In the gaming benchmarks and just about everything else the memory difference was minimal. For network testing, the Intel I219V showed no issues as well.
