ASUS Maximus 4 Extreme Review

Crysis Warhead

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%.

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