MSI Z170A Gaming M9 ACK Motherboard Review: Sharp Dressed, Feature Packed
Z170A Gaming M9 ACK LAME MT And SunSpider
Balanced - This test is balanced between different areas of the language and different types of code. It's not all math, all string processing, or all timing simple loops. In addition to having tests in many categories, the individual tests were balanced to take similar amounts of time on currently shipping versions of popular browsers.
Statistically Sound - One of the challenges of benchmarking is knowing how much noise you have in your measurements. This benchmark runs each test multiple times and determines an error range (technically, a 95% confidence interval). In addition, in comparison mode it tells you if you have enough data to determine if the difference is statistically significant.
The system was tested using the latest version of the new Microsoft Edge browser, which comes with Windows 10.
Here we see MSI take a win while overclocked and virtually tie with Asus in the stock test. However, again, the margin is less than a millisecond, is within the margin of error in this test, and will frankly go completely unnoticed to the user.
