We used 3DMark‘s ‘Fire Strike Ultra’ benchmark which is designed to be used on high-resolution gaming PCs.
Grand Theft Auto V
We apply very near maximum settings in Grand Theft Auto V and a 1920×1080 resolution to push today’s hardware. Our data was recorded using the built-in benchmark. The game’s latest updates may slightly affect performance on the more recently tested motherboards compared to competitors tested many weeks ago.
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor
We used a 1920×1080 resolution and the Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor built-in benchmark set to ‘Ultra’ quality.
As stated in the Testing Methodology section, the graphics card has been changed. To keep result presentation fair, new graphs have been created.
The 3DMark Physics score shows that Supermicro's motherboard is able to compete in the CPU-centric test.
