Gigabyte X299 AORUS Master Specifications
Here is a quick list of the motherboard specs for the Gigabyte X299 AORUS Master:
For our CPU we will be using an Intel Core i9-9820X 3.3 GHz (10 core/20 thread.) This is what we would expect a user to jump to if they wanted something that offered more cores and PCIe lanes than today’s 6-8 core mainstream desktop parts.
Let us continue with performance testing.
AIDA64 Memory Test
AIDA64 memory bandwidth benchmarks (Memory Read, Memory Write, and Memory Copy) measure the maximum achievable memory data transfer bandwidth.
With higher speed memory kits the Gigabyte X299 AORUS Master can show impressive memory bandwidth.
Cinebench R15 is a fairly lightweight benchmark that stays mostly in caches and scales with cache speed, as well as thread count. Here are our Cinebench R15 results:
One thing to note about the Intel Core i9-9820X processor is it has high single core speeds. It also trails some of the AMD Threadripper setups we have tested.
Geekbench has a suite of tests that gives some relative rating of performance.
High clock speeds over ten cores help in Geekbench to achieve the high scores shown compared to what we saw in some of our Threadripper reviews.
SPECworkstation3 measures the 3D graphics performance of systems running under the OpenGL and Direct X application programming interfaces.
SPECworkbench is a very demanding benchmark that takes a considerable amount of time to complete. The Gigabyte X299 AORUS Master shows very impressive SPECworkbench results compared to what we had seen in our lower-end professional platforms.
PassMark Performance Test allows you to benchmark a PC using a variety of different speed tests; it tests the entire PC and all its components.
Overall, the Gigabyte X299 AORUS Master performed exceptionally well compared to some of the other workstation configurations we have tested.
Next, we are going to look at the power consumption before getting to our final thoughts.
