ASUS Rampage 4 Extreme Review
PC Mark and [email protected]
PC Mark Vantage
After our pretty poor showing on the Intel board, in the RAM score particularly, things are redeemed on the ASUS R4E. Vantage still isn't putting up the numbers that we'd expect when you look at all the rest of our results, but the Rampage makes the best of it and certainly puts the DX79SI in the shade.
PC Mark 7
Demonstrating the underlying performance of the Rampage IV, the PC Mark 7 result is 300 points, 10%, better at stock than the reference board. That's a huge gain in anyone's book. Our overclock pushes that another 250 points higher. Remember, this is with a mechanical drive only. A quick SSD would pretty much double the total score.

Although we see a small increase from the Rampage IV Extreme at stock when compared to the Intel DX79SI, just look at the overclock result. 53470 PPD anybody?
