ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition Review
As you can see nearly everything about the Rampage IV Black Edition is improved over the already excellent Extreme version. The quality of the audio components is a particular highlight, and anyone who has made do with the scratchy audio of old integrated solutions will be left slack-jawed at the quality now available as an onboard offering.
You could almost play spot the difference if you had enough time and the inclination to do so. Thankfully for you we've already covered this in our video review, so you're saved from it. But it's definitely a case that ASUS haven't done any laurel resting, but instead made the most of the X79 chipset and tried to overcome the limitations inherent in the Intel design. The ability to securely erase your drives is one that you're unlikely to use often, but will be a boon on the day that there is an unexpected knock on the door. The RAM Disk allows you to perform tasks at blistering speed, and if you're reliant upon one or two applications it can really improve your workflow.
And we haven't even mentioned the inclusion of Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag.
