ASUS ROG Maximus VI Hero Testing:

LAN performance will be tested via a pair of utilities to gauge the performance of the on board 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 24bit 44kHz.

Looking at the LAN testing results the Maximus VI Hero, the Intel DZ87KLT-78, and the MSI Z87-GD65 are all in the same performance envelope. Audio results show that the Supreme FX Realtek  ALC1150 controlled sound package does well in the testing, but a series of numbers does not fully quantify what your ears hear.
