Gigabyte AB350-Gaming 3 Motherboard Review

Cinebench R15

Cinebench is an application which renders a photorealistic 3D scene to benchmark a computer’s rendering performance, on one CPU core, all CPU cores or using the GPU. We run the test using the all core CPU mode.


Handbrake Conversion

Handbrake is a free and open-source video transcoding tool that can be used to convert video files between different codecs, formats and resolutions. We measured the average frame rate achieved for a task of converting a 6.27GB 4K video using the Normal Profile setting and MP4 container. The test stresses all CPU cores to 100% and shows an affinity for memory bandwidth.

SiSoft Sandra Processor Arithmetic

SiSoft Sandra is a multi-function utility program that supports remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features for PCs, servers, mobile devices and networks. We run the application’s processor arithmetic test to gauge the CPU performance on each tested motherboard.

No issues with Gigabyte’s AB350-Gaming 3 when it comes to CPU-heavy performance. The performance is almost identical to that of ASRock and MSI competitors.

    Thank You for the review very well done and lots of useful information here. I have to build systems for my customer a lot and reviews like this are really helpful for me. If I was to choose between these three boards I would not have a problem using any of them in a build I put my store name on. But if it came right down to it I probably would choose the Gigabyte board just because with those extra features it puts more boxes to check off on the spec sheet.

  • Luke, I love that your reviews go into details on fabrication. It’s info I’ve not found anywhere else. The AB350-Gaming 3 features everything I’m after. I don’t need multiple graphics cards or support for more storage, but I’d be willing to pay a little more for a slight step up which doesn’t compromise on power and thermal considerations. Without Kitguru reviews of all the boards, I’m not sure where to look. Does the AX370-Gaming K3 fit the bill? What about the MSI B350 Gaming Pro Carbon? Any guidance would be much appreciated.
