MSI Z87-G45 Gaming Motherboard versus GIGABYTE Z87-D3HP Motherboard Review

MSI Z87-G45 Gaming vs. Gigabyte Z87-D3HP Motherboard Review

This week Intel launches their "Haswell" range of CPUs known as 4th Generation Core processors and we just looked at their i7-4770K. As is often the case with new Intel generations these CPUs arrive with a new chipset and new socket to install them on, in this case Socket 1150 and 8-Series with models such as H87, Q87 and Z87 covering various price and feature points.

Today we take a look at two boards which look to offer a value option in the Z87 market while maintaining as many features as possible from high end products. First up is Gigabytes Z87-D3HP and then we have the MSI Z87-G45 Gaming. Both will be tested in a selection of synthetic and real world tests which include Crysis 3, Grid 2 and the brand new PCMark 8... all with the i7-4770K on board.
