This page shows us all of the key performance information that we need to know when comparing different motherboards based on the same architecture. The key learning from this page is that the ZOTAC and ASUS boards both offer a good overall experience which is very closely matched in many of the tests. In one area the ASUS board stands out though and that is SATA performance. With the latest ZOTAC BIOS and drivers we were unable to get our SSD’s running at full SATA 6GB/s speed, this has been raised with ZOTAC but at the time of writing it remains unresolved and ASUS have the edge on that front.

Since then though Intel launched (along with some lower spec models) the Core i7-4790K, a model which sits at the top of their mainstream platform. Today we see how it compares to various other models when installed on Gigabytes Z97X Gaming 5 and paired with PowerColors new dual core 290X Devil 13.
