3DMark Vantage

A reliable and popular benchmark, 3DMark Vantage can provide a good insight into the overall gaming performance of a system.



Metro 2033

Metro 2033 is an action-oriented video game with a combination of survival horror and first-person shooter elements. This title is one of the most system intensive PC games available today, which makes it a perfect benchmark for our reviews.



Just Cause 2

Just Cause 2 is an open world action-adventure video game created by Swedish developer Avalanche Studios and Eidos Interactive and was published by Square Enix. Just Cause 2 employs the Avalanche Engine 2.0, an updated version of the engine used in the original Just Cause game title.


Our gaming benchmarks between all four of these motherboards were almost identical across the board. These results are consistent with our figures from Sandra as well. The Z68A-GD80 also performed on par with its counterparts in 3DMark11 and 3DMark Vantage.
