Four-Way Gigabyte P45 Motherboard Round-Up
PCMark and 3DMark Vantage
The GPU heavy 3DMark Vantage test shows virtually no performance difference between these platforms, even though some platforms can support our 9600 GT’s PCI Express 2.0 interface and some cannot – performance as you can see is flat across the board.
PCMark Vantage shows some slight variants between our boards, although the performance differences aren’t large enough to show a noticeable difference. So, for the most part throughout these two tests, we’re looking at only a few percentage points of difference between all of these various platforms, which is pretty impressive considering the architectural differences here.
