Gaming Performance

Let's just throw all the numbers at you and go from there:

As expected, the GA-8IPE1000 Pro2-W performs right on par with the 875P board, sometimes beating it by a bit. To me, this is amazing; Gigabyte is able to enable PAT full time, seemingly without worrying about stability. I saw no way to turn it off, so that has to be the case!

If you can get CIA and MIB working, you might just have a board worthy of going against Abit's AI7 we gave an award to. The AI7 is another 865PE based board that performed well beyond expectations. Better than this board in fact.
