Interestingly, in PassMark PerformanceTest 7.0, the Asus P7P55D-E Premium still consistently outperformed the Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD6, but by no more than a few points each time. As mentioned earlier, it is most likely due to setting optimizations (Despite identical manually defined BIOS settings for a fair comparison) and drivers. The tests were repeated to ensure accuracy, and the differences were definitely not significant, either.
