The Asrock Z68M-ITX/HT and Core i3-2120 delivered nearly as much bandwidth as the i7-2600K configuration. Although Asrock's A75-based setups were well behind Intel's platform, they did outpace the 890FX board with a Phenom II X6 1100T.
We witnessed a similar separation in the next test, as the i3-2120 and Z68M-ITX/HT's L2 cache performance was almost three times greater than the A8-3850 and A75M-ITX.
