ASUS Rampage Extreme Motherboard

CPU and Memory Benchmarks

Sisoft SANDRA 
SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a PC. Each of the benchmarks below were run a total of five times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average being calculated from the remaining three.
 
 Sisoft CPU Dhrystone
 
Sisoft Whetstone
 
Sisoft Multimedia Int
 
Sisoft Multimedia Float
 
 
Lavalys Everest 
Everest is in many ways similar to Sisoft Sandra. Focusing mainly on software and hardware information reporting, Everest also comes with a benchmark utility suitable for testing the read, write and latency performance of the memory subsystem. Each of these benchmarks were performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average calculated from the remaining 3.
  
Everest Memory Read
 
Everest Memory Write
 
Everest Memory Latency
 
 
Result Observations
 
Both the Rampage Extreme and Blitz Formula SE boards performed very closely to one another. However, in the Memory testing there is now quite a difference. This is most likely down to the extra bandwidth that DDR3 provides over the DDR2 of the Blitz Formula.

Nice review, mate.

This board is really cool looking, but the price tag hurts my eyes .

They should put that cooler onto the rampage formula and the sound card also .Quote

£250! Are they serious?!

8/10 on the price!? Are you serious or have you started crapping 24 carrot turds?

It's a nice mobo (and review) but £250 is beyond a joke. I hope this flops. Top end mobos should be around the £150/175 max. I can't... It's... £250. WTF.Quote

My sentiments exactly mate, PC manufacturers should start getting a handle on what an 'enthusiast' is. It's not someone who spends that on a mobo, that's for sure.

8/10 on price is a little generous I feel Matt

Lush board though Quote
