ASUS Rampage III Extreme Review World First
3D and Gaming Benchmarks
3D Mark Vantage
3D Mark, whilst normally fairly unreflective of anything but its own scores, actually does a good job here of replicating all our previous findings. There is definitely something under the hood of the Rampage III Extreme that allowing our CPU to really stretch its legs.
Both of our gaming results were as similar as you'd expect with games being so GPU dependant these days. Although it is pleasing to see Warhead hit 60FPS average, largely thanks to the little legroom the CPU gains on this platform as we mentioned above.
Need For Speed Shift
Need for Speed Shift gave similar results, a few frames here and there but nothing you would expect to see in a bunch of bench runs. Of course as we run things five times and discard the highest and lowest it does show that generally the Rampage III Extreme is able to get a little more out of the system than the Rampage II was.
