ASUS Rampage III Gene Review
Starting with the excellent Sandra from SiSoftware, we can see that in our Arithmetic test the Gene easily keeps up with its big brother. In overclock mode the Gene really rocks, as of course we'd expect.
The Extreme just edges out the Gene in the Multimedia test. Although there isn't much between them to be honest. Naturally the overclock dominates the graphs.
Everest Ultimate Edition
Everest from Lavalys gives a larger lead to the Rampage III Extreme than we saw in the Sandra testing, as befits the price difference between the Gene and the Extreme. The overclock increase remains consistent across the board.
wPrime is far more reliant upon memory speeds and the CPU speed than the motherboard, and we can see that demonstrated in our results. The difference between the big and little Rampage IIIs is negligible.
PC Mark Vantage
Futuremarks PC Mark Vantage is a much more system-wide series of tests and we can clearly see the Extreme III justifying its price-tag over the Gene. That isn't to say that the Gene is in any way disgraced. Given its price-tag and naturally cut-down specifications it actually handles the PC Mark test with aplomb.
