Gigabyte X99-UD4P

Aida64 and RamDisk


Turning our attention over to Aida64 CPU testing, we can see once again that having more threads available gives us a nice performance boost. Now please keep in mind that the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe with the Intel Core i7 3820 CPU is operating at 3.8 GHz, while the Gigabyte X99-UD4P with the Intel Core i7 5820 CPU is using a 3.6 GHz core speed.

Now it is time for me to see how the two motherboard systems perform on Aida64 memory bandwidth testing. Just like what we saw with SiSoft memory bandwidth testing, the DDR4 capabilities of the Gigabyte X99-UD4P motherboard clearly outperforms the DDR3 capabilities of the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe motherboard.

In the latency testing portion of Aida64, once again, just like SiSoft 2015, having lower timings like that of the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe motherboard is still preferred over the overall frequency of the DDR4 capability of the Gigabyte X99-UD4P motherboard.

RAM Disk Crystal Disk Mark

Now before I continue with the next benchmark run, I will need to explain this next chart. RAM drives are where we take a portion of our memory and turn it into a usable storage device. There are plenty of different RAM drive programs available to us, some are free, some are limited free but require us to purchase a license after so many days or to increase the size of our RAM Drives, while others require us to flat out purchase it. All of these programs have the same principle: to take a portion of memory and turn it into a useable storage device. I am using a free program called Soft Perfect RAM Disk, and used Crystal Disk Mark 3 to run a test on that newly created RAM Drive. I recommend trying several different programs and see what works best for you if and when you choose to use a RAM Drive.

Looking at these numbers, it appears that the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe motherboard outperformed the Gigabyte X99-UD4P motherboard in the Sequential Read portion of the testing. But looking at the writing and the 4K portion of testing with Crystal Disk Mark the Gigabyte X99-UD4P surpasses the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe motherboard.

Razer Blade 15 Base Edition (2021)

2020 will go down as a horrible year for getting hold of new graphics card. I still know people who ordered the new Nvidia Series 30 graphics card at launch in September 2020 and still have not been able to receive it. One avenue to get a new Series 30-card might be to go the laptop route instead as it is much easier to get hold of those. Nvidia recently released their RTX 3060, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080-GPU’s for laptop and today I am testing the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition that comes with a Intel i7-10750H, a 15” 165 Hz QHD-screen and a RTX 3070.
