Sapphire Pure Platinum Z77K Motherboard Review

CINEBENCH R11.5 64 Bit is a real-world cross platform test suite that evaluates your computer’s performance capabilities. CINEBENCH is based on MAXON’s award-winning animation software CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. MAXON software has been used in blockbuster movies such as Spider-Man, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia and many more.

CINEBENCH is the perfect tool to compare CPU and graphics performance across various systems and platforms (Windows and Mac OS X). And best of all: It’s completely free.

When all four cores are loaded, the Sapphire board by default drops the core speed to 3,700mhz. The Asus Z77 boards we reviewed in the last week run at 3,900mhz, even with all four cores loaded @ 100%. This explains the slightly lower scores when running at ‘out of the box’ speeds via this Sapphire board. It would be easy enough to adjust the ratio in the bios- all to 39.

This is a clever move from ASUS really. When overclocked to 4.6ghz, the scores are identical to the Asus Z77 products.

    I think they make good products, but and its a big but. their allegance with AMD rules out SLI and this puts a lot of people off. Its a major hurdle for them.

    The first bios they released was dire, I remember it. this is a big step up. Still some way to go before they reach ASUS level, DIGI POWER+ menu alone is incredible and they have dedicated controls for vdroop etc.
