7-Zip

7-Zip is an open source Windows utility for manipulating archives. We measure the Total Rating performance using the built-in benchmark tool. The test stresses all CPU cores to 100% and shows an affinity for memory bandwidth.

Memory-based performance is also fine with the Gigabyte board, even if its latency numbers are very slightly worse than those of its competitors.

It has a 'gamer friendly' 120hz panel, but do the rest of the specs stack up?

    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.

    How is the on board DVI and HDMI Display enabled on the AB350 MoBo? I’ve installed a older ASUS GTX 650 Graphics card and I can only pull up displays that are connected to it.. I tried removing the GTX… and used the onboard DVI and HDMI… nothing!!

  • Mon Berg

    these don’t have onboard graphics so those port on the mboard are useless you need a separate graphics card.

    I have heard they was put their because these boards will be supported upto 2020 so newer cpu could offer that function not sure if this is true we will see

  • PETER

    Yea! Thanks Mon Berg!! After a lot of wasted time I realize that! Deceptive advertising.. You have to look at the fine print (*) I now need to buy another graphics card to run 3 displays… 3 contiguous displays.. Does this sound like a proposition?
