Intel Z270 Motherboard Round-Up: MSI, Gigabyte, And ASUS Offerings For Kaby Lake

Z270 Motherboard Round-Up: Cinebench R15 And POV-Ray

Cinebench R15 is a 3D rendering performance test based on Cinema 4D from Maxon. Cinema 4D is a 3D rendering and animation suite used by animation houses and producers like Sony Animation and many others. It's very demanding of processor resources and is an excellent gauge of pure computational throughput.

MSI takes the lead again here with the XPOWER Titanium pulling just slightly away from the scrappy ASUS ROG STRIX.
