ASUS ROG Maximus VI Hero Testing:
PCMark 7 is the latest iteration of Futuremark's popular PCMark system performance tool. This version is designed for use on Windows 7 PCs and features a combination of 25 different workloads to accurately measure the performance of all PCs from laptops to desktops.
SiSoft Sandra 2013 is a diagnostic utility and synthetic benchmarking program. Sandra allows you to view your hardware at a higher level to be more helpful. For this benchmark, I will be running a broad spectrum of tests to gauge the performance of key functions of the CPUs.
As I saw when testing the MSI Z87-GD65, the ASUS Maximus VI Hero seems to do an even better job of managing the boost clock speeds to offer a higher level of performance right out of the box when compared to the Intel and MSI mid range gaming solution. The margins are not drastic but measurable.
