Application & Synthetic Testing
All systems were run in dual channel or quad-channel modes where applicable. The Intel Core i9 10980XE used timings of 18,19,19,39@1T. The Intel 9900K used timings of 16,18,18,36@1T while the AMD test systems used timings of 16,16,16,36@1T.
Of course, the quad-channel Intel Core i9 10980XE has the highest amount of memory bandwidth. It’s not really a point for direct comparison but rather reference. For whatever reason, the GIGABYTE X570 Gaming X achieved results that were low compared to other similar configurations.
Sandra CPU Dhrystone
Here we see very solid scores out of the GIGABYTE X570 Gaming X. Even at stock speeds, it bests the Unify and sits very close to the Crosshair VIII Hero’s scores.
At stock speeds, the GIGABYTE X570 Gaming X achieved a score of 7,859 when overclocked to 4.3GHz all core and 7,418. These results were both at the top and third out of our test lineup.
As usual, WinRAR results are kind of all over the map. In the multithreaded test, the GIGABYTE X570 Gaming X scored very similarly to the other AMD test systems although, it fell short of their results by a small margin. The test clearly favors Intel test systems in this case.
WinRAR – Single Thread
In the WinRAR single-thread test, we saw the inverse result compared to the multi-threaded test. Here, the GIGABYTE X570 Gaming X achieved the best results we’ve seen so far.
In the wPrime test, we saw a result of 229.05 at stock speeds and 236.32 when overclocked. These results are right in line with other similar test systems as you can see.
