Results - SYSmark 2007 Preview

For the first benchmark, the MSI Z77 MPower proved its worth as a pedigree Intel Z77 board by taking pole position. As SYSmark 2007 is most taxing on the processing platform, it's ideal for sussing out which of the boards can bring out the best of our Intel i7-3770K 'Ivy Bridge' CPU. It is a neck-to-neck race between MSI Z77 MPower and ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe, with the former edging out the ASUS board by a margin of 0.34%! Compared to its mainstream enthusiast edition board, the MSI Z77A- GD65, the new MPower board manages a notable 4% lead.
