ASUS Rampage Extreme Motherboard

Encoding Benchmarks

ViMark 
 
ViMark is the latest addition to the OC3D motherboard testing process and a relatively new benchmarking application in general. Designed to take the inaccuracies and guesswork out of measuring the time taken to encode video files, ViMark produces easily comparable and consistent results for encoding raw video into Windows Media, Quicktime, AVI and Gif formats. As always, a total of 5 benchmark runs were performed with the highest and lowest scores removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 scores.
  
 ViMark Windows Media
 
ViMark Apple
 
ViMark AVI
 
ViMark GIF
  
 
 7-Zip
 
7-Zip is an open source Winzip-style file compression utility that has the ability to compress and decompress many file formats including its own .7z compression scheme. 7-Zip also comes complete with its own benchmarking utility for gauging the compression and decompression speed of the system that it is installed on.

Result Observations
 
Once again a fairly even range of results with the DDR3 based Rampage Extreme showing an improvement over the DDR2 based Blitz Formula SE in 7-Zip compressions benchmarks.

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
