Gigabyte X58A-OC Intel X58 Motherboard Review

Testing – Video
The next two pages of testing depend very highly on the video card you use.  In our case it is the EVGA GTX 570.  You also will not see a huge difference between stock results and the overclocked results.

Our first video test is 3DMark 11.


Up next is 3DMark Vantage, I ran it on the “Performance” setting.


Our next benchmarking tool is the Heaven Demo v2.5. The Heaven Demo is based off the Unigine and is actually a DirectX 11 demo. The settings we used were 1920 x 1080 resolution, shaders: high, textures: high, filter: trilinear, Anisotrophy: 4x, antialiasing 8x.


Stone Giant is a DirectX 11 demo produced by Fatshark in collaboration with BitSquid using BitSquid Tech. It has primarily been developed to test the BitSquid tools and technology in a real-world production environment. The demo showcases how DX11 hardware tessellation can be used to achieve a high level of geometry detail in close-up shots.  The settings we used were Resolution: 1920 x 1080, Aspect: Auto, Tessellation: High.
