ASUS Rampage III Gene Review
3D Mark Vantage
Vantage responds well to our processor overclock, as we'd expect it to, but this shows that the Gene has the go as well as the show. Even at stock it keeps pace with its big brother.
We are huge fans of Dirt 2 here at OC3D, and why wouldn't we be when it gives great results no matter what we test it on. It's the same here with the Gene as we find the results replicate those we've seen up to now.
Good old Crysis Warhead. If there is one thing it can be guaranteed to do it's provide us with lots of head-scratching. No idea what was going on with our overclock results here, so we'll treat it as the aberration it is and move on to our final couple of tests.
POV-Ray and CineBench R11.5
Both POV-Ray and CineBench are 3D rendering engines, but they go about image creation in very different methods. The robustness of the Gene shines through here as nothing stresses your CPU and subsystem in quite the same way as rendering. Yet the Gene just keeps on chomping numbers.
