Video Encoding x264 HD
In the x264 HD benchmark, we once again found the X79-UD7 outperformed the Intel reference board by a fair margin. The UD7 got an FPS count of 176.5 on Pass 1 and 54.74 on Pass 2. The Intel board got an FPS count of 164.18 on Pass 1 and 50.48 on Pass 2. This works out to just below a 10% difference between the two boards again.Battlefield 3
In BF3 we saw a variety of results as the Average frame rate of the Intel board was 78 while the Gigabyte X79-UD7 got 75.6 FPS. The DX79SI Intel board had a slightly higher minimum FPS of 62, compared to the UD7 which had a minimum frame rate of 60. Interestingly, the UD7 did have a higher maximum frame rate, although maximum frame rates are not as important as average and minimum frame rates when gaming.
