ASUS Rampage III Gene Review

Benchmarks Part Two

ASUS Rampage III  Gene Review

Benchmarks Pt2

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.


Dirt 2

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.


Crysis Warhead

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.

This board kicks all kinds of ass. LOADS of people I know are using it.

A little while ago you could pick up the latest Alienware chassis on Ebay for about £200 with a 1kw Delta PSU. Few of my friends got them and put in this board.. It kicked seven shades out of the actual Alienware Quote

BTW Tom I think this is relevant.. I am an ROG owner. I have noticed the ROG site is immensely slow. Terrible, even.

Is this just me and if not could you have a word with Asus? TBH that's the ONLY gripe I ever had with my board was waiting all day for the updates to download and then finding they had dropped and corrupted..

If this post needs moving then please do so Quote
