Gigabyte's GA-P55-UD3R is right in the middle in Futuremark's 3DMark 06, which tests most of the motheboard's major features. Intel's P55 Express chipset seems to be pretty stable between different motherboard implementations.

3DMark Vantage shows a lot of the traits as 3DMark06, with the GA-P55-UD3R again in the middle of the pack.

Sierra FEAR 1.08

Source: Sierra

FEAR is Sierra's latest first person shooter which relies heavily on DirectX 9 features. With its "Soft Shadows" feature enabled, even the fastest videocards run at a crawl, FEAR is definitely the new benchmark for future FPS games to follow.

The GA-P55-UD3R's PCI Express performance is even less of a variable now that the videocards are handled directly by the Intel Core i5 CPU. All three motherboards here have identical performance.
