Benchmark Results: Call Of Duty, Crysis

X58 On A Budget: Seven Sub-$200 Core i7 Boards

Benchmarks are sorted by the highest average result, so it’s no surprise when the fastest motherboard at our highest test resolution also has a higher average result than the one with the highest low-resolution frame rate. Gigabyte edged out Foxconn in Call of Duty, even though Foxconn overclocks its CPU base clock slightly.

At higher details, Foxconn beat Gigabyte, but only by about the difference in clock speed. It’s more noticeable that every other motherboard fell significantly behind in this bench. Retesting did not reveal a problem, but differences in BIOS can explain it, thanks to implementations of Intel's Turbo mode.

Crysis performance is almost the opposite-order from Call of Duty, with ECS and Asus swapping the top position.
