ASUS Rampage V Extreme Testing:

LAN performance will be tested via a utility to gauge the performance of the onboard network solutions. The motherboard being tested will be connected via a Gigabit switch to another system with an integrated Gigabit network solution on board.

iPerf is a small lightweight utility run from the command prompt and can be used to measure both TCP and UDP performance on a network. iPerf is cross-platform software and open source. The test is configured to run for 20 seconds with a window size of 256 KB and four simultaneous streams that should be able to saturate the TCP link on a good NIC.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RightMark Audio Analyzer 6.25 is used to test the sound solution on board each motherboard. Nothing beats a good set of ears and headphones, but this is a graphic representation of the capabilities of the installed hardware. Sampling mode is 24-bit 44kHz.

Using iPerf, each of the tested boards deliver 940+ Mbits/s. What makes the difference, is going to be the Game First III packet management software, to prioritize which traffic you want to put more bandwidth emphasis on. CPU usage has been between two to five percent during all of the tests, indicating that very little overhead is required to manage the process. When you test the sound of a board, it is going to be subjective and dependent on being able to pick up the nuances of the instruments or background sounds when gaming. Sound testing, subjective by nature, is something not everyone will agree upon. Throughout the testing the SupremeFX 2014 sound solution delivers clear and concise sounds. Watching the Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug on Blu-Ray, playing through Battlefield 4, and World of Tanks for some game testing and listening to a variety of music from AC/DC to Alter Bridge all proved enjoyable. ASUS keeps raising the bar and has added hardware profiles for use with ASUS Soundstage, which allow you to set a profile for use with the front panel audio ports. For the vast majority of users, a discrete audio card is not going to be needed any longer thanks to the strength of ASUS' audio solution. Of course, if you are an audiophile then you will be putting a discrete card in anyhow. In the RMAA testing, the results were rated in the Very Good range.
