ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition Review

Despite the excellent PC Mark performance, and general improvements we've seen so far in our testing, neither of the calculation heavy tests, CineBench or x264 video transcoding, highlight a difference between the two motherboards. Of course we wouldn't expect much of a difference, but considering what we've seen so far it's a bit of a surprise.

CineBench R11.5

x264 Benchmark v5

I cant really for GPU reviews, theres far too many in the graph to risk it being a bit out. Motherboard reviews wouldnt matter too much but probably not is the quick answer.Quote

Very nice looking board, £400 though. Ouch. But I guess if your getting built-in audio that is as good as the best of sound cards...it's not that bad.Quote

Thank you very much for this review Tom. Long awaited! You covered everything, also watched the video, what a beautiful creation this board is.

I think $500 (according to Newegg) is a bit excessive...but we all know you get what you pay for.

I have been waiting for a board before buying the 4930k, the wait is over.

Over the past 6 years that I have been using ASUS motherboards I have had plenty of ups and down with them, but in all honesty I really have become almost "dependent" (more like 100% comfortable) with them.

Thanks again for the review!Quote
