In this system-wide benchmarking suite, the positions of the two leading boards were swopped, with the ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe board with the highest overall score while the MSI Z77 MPower was the first runner-up. Their scores were only about separated by a thin margin of about 1.5%. Once again, the difference between the MPower edition and the GD65 edition is quite appreciable with a 6% difference. MSI has certainly been tweaking their most powerful board to a good degree (or they could be artificially be limiting their mainstream board, but we'll unlikely be told about that).
