ASUS Maximus 4 Extreme Review

CineBench

Once again the sheer number crunching capabilities shine through as we see the highest CPU score we've seen by some distance. Even at stock the Maximus IV setup is on a par with a heavily overclocked Rampage III Extreme, but once you do the single-click overclock it's romping off into the distance with a massive 9 CPU pts.

Of slight concern is that once again the OpenGL abilities seem to be in question. We'll run some games on the next page to see.

wPrime

As if to emphasise the main strengths of this setup being about the ability to crunch numbers at an incredible speed, the wPrime result is the fastest Quad-Core we've seen and not far off some of the hex-core results we've got.

Well they'll get better press if you let you use it when it's all patched up.Quote
