Gaming performance for Gigabyte's Z170XP-SLI is decent. It is generally a little slower than the higher-priced competitors, although a couple of percentage point drops in frame rates are unlikely to be noticeable in general gameplay and is close to benchmarking error margins.

By ploughing the money saved when buying Gigabyte's low-cost motherboard into a higher-performance graphics card, that minor frame rate deficit could be overcome with ease.
