# How would the discovery of Higgs Boson affect superstring theories?

As we probably all know, a new particle similar to Higgs Boson has been discovered.

If this turns out to be true, standard model will get a boost (as the discovered mass almost equals to the prediction of standard model).

My question is what is the mass of higgs boson that superstring theories predict, and how would this discovery and its data affect superstring theories.
