ASUS ROG Maximus VI Extreme Testing:
Cinebench 11.5 is useful for testing your system, CPU, and OpenGL capabilities using the software program, CINEMA 4D. We will be using the default tests for this benchmark.
X.264 Benchmark: This benchmark is used to measure the time it takes to encode a 1080p video file into the x264 format. The default benchmark is used with an average of all four tests on each pass taken as the result.
AIDA64 Extreme Edition 3.0 is a software utility designed to be used for hardware diagnosis and benchmarking. I will be using the Cache and Memory benchmark tool to measure memory performance.
In just about every test the Maximus VI Extreme is at the top of the charts, delivering the highest performance in Cinebench, X.264, and in the AIDA64 memory tests. Where it breaks down is the latency test in AIDA, although the latency does not seem to hinder memory performance.
