Asus mATX ROG Rampage II Gene X58 Motherboard

Memory Benchmarks

SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a PC. Each of the benchmarks below were run a total of five times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average being calculated from the remaining three.


Everest is in many ways similar to Sisoft Sandra. Focusing mainly on software and hardware information reporting, Everest also comes with a benchmark utility suitable for testing the read, write and latency performance of the memory subsystem. Each of these benchmarks were performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average calculated from the remaining three.

Results Analysis

Thanks to the shorter traces on the motherboard the Gene excels in out suite of memory benchmarks coming out the clear victor in most of the tests run. Asus are rumoured to be employing this tactic in it's new range of motherboards so expect to see further increases in future releases by the Taiwanese manufacturer. If memory performance is what you are looking for in a motherboard it is quite clear where your allegiance should lay.

Let's see how the boards perform in our Hard Drive benchmarks...

Very, nice review. Wanted to see a higher base clock though, 220 would have been nice. Any body know how this compares to the DFI x58 jr board in terms of bclk overclocking?
