Benchmark Results: Z77 Versus Z68 In Applications
Because we saw no penalty associated with running Virtu in our game tests, we expect steady performance in most applications as well.
Yet, Virtu also enables Intel Quick Sync on our GeForce GTX 580-equipped platform, so we’re expecting a big boost in transcode applications written to exploit Intel's Media SDK.
Unfortunately, the only Quick Sync-enabled applications we have are Cyberlink MediaEspresso and Arcsoft MediaConverter. Both apps enjoy a significant speed-up compared to what Nvidia's GeForce GTX 580 could do natively with CUDA.
Could you guys provide a video showing the differences between a run with the MVP and without? With V-Sync on also.
Nice review, BTW. Thanks for it 8)
IB and z77 VS. IB and z68?
Made me do a double take!
Don't expect them to tell you, they're still under Intel's NDA.
What's up with that? Do the z77's require the Ivy Bridge CPU to take full advantage? Sounds like possible driver and/or most likely BIOS issues as others have pointed out elsewhere on page 2 of the z77 Motherboard Discussion thread.
