ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming 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

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 use Handbrake to convert a short 720p into the Android preset built into the application.

SiSoft Sandra

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 run the application’s processor arithmetic test to gauge the CPU performance on each tested motherboard.

CPU performance, as might well be expected, is indistinguishable across all tested motherboards. In some cases CPU performance can vary depending on a motherboard’s default Turbo policies but we account for this by ensuring all motherboards use the same enhanced all-core turbo along with the memory’s default XMP profile.
