Gigabyte Aorus Z270X-Gaming K5 Motherboard Review

Sandra Memory Bandwidth

SiSoft Sandra 2016 is a multi-function utility program that supports remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features for PCs, servers, mobile devices and networks. We use the SiSoft Sandra memory bandwidth test to provide a set of memory bandwidth results.

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 bandwidth performance falls off the pace a little for the Gaming K5. This has a minor impact on the 7-Zip score, although the performance drop-off is realistically unnoticeable (less than 1%).
