ASUS Maximus 4 Extreme Review
In keeping with the rather disappointing 3D results we've seen so far the Maximus IV Extreme can't keep up with any of its stablemates at all at stock. Considering how much faster at stock the 2600K is against the i7-870 especially this is a surprise. Even at 4.6GHz it doesn't take a comprehensive lead like we'd expect it to. It's not bad, just not quite as impressive as we thought it would be.
Alien vs Predator
Alien vs Predator is even worse than Crysis Warhead. The massive overclock isn't enough to budge the frame-rate at all and the X58 Rampage III Extreme takes the plaudits by around 8%.
