Four Z87 Express Motherboards For Three- And Four-Way SLI

Results: Productivity

Still looking for any real-world indicators of the Z87X-UD7 TH’s slightly lower memory bandwidth result, we find Gigabyte's board slightly behind in both 3ds Max and Visual Studio 2010. The same motherboard’s good performance in Blender, along with a competitor’s stumble in ABBY FineReader, still lead us towards essentially comparable overall performance.
